Abstract: Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR), Fisheries Division surveyed fish populations and angler catch and effort at Houghton Lake, Roscommon County, Michigan from January 2001 through March 2002. This work was part of a new, statewide program designed to improve assessment and monitoring of fish communities and fisheries in Michigan’s largest inland lakes. Known as the Large Lakes Program, it is currently scheduled to survey about four lakes per year over the next ten years. This report on Houghton Lake is the first in a series that will document the work of the program.
