About the Speakers
Dr. Bryan Burroughs is the Executive Director of Michigan Trout Unlimited, the statewide council of Michigan TU Chapters, and has served in that role since 2007. Bryan has a PhD in Fisheries from Michigan State University, and received the chapter’s Schrems Scholarship during that time. Part of his role working for MITU is staying on-top of coldwater conservation issues that affect our waters throughout the state. Bryan will be speaking about several of the top statewide issues affecting our waters from last year and next year, along with answering questions from the audience about any issues attendees have questions about.
Brian “Koz” Kozminski of True North Trout guide service will be on-hand discussing the variety of rivers and fishing north of the 45th parallel. From the popular upper Manistee River to the lesser-known Pigeon, Maple, Jordan, Black, and Sturgeon rivers, northern Michigan has every type of water to satisfy your fly fishing appetite.
