This paper summarizes certain information on the fisheries of two research projects on waters of northern Wisconsin. These projects, Five Lakes and Murphy Flowage, were established in 1946 and 1955, respectively, to study fish populations and the effect on them of various management procedures. This led to a study of angling practices and variations in fishing pressure and success that might influence the results of management. In view of the importance of the sport fishery in northern Wisconsin, it was felt that this information would also be of interest to all who are connected with the tourist industry and recreational planning.
