MSU Board meeting to discuss fishing on campus

EAST LANSING, MI. (WLNS) – The Michigan State University Board of Trustees will meet Friday to discuss whether to extend an ordinance amendment that allows people to catch fish in the Red Cedar River on campus.

The amendment allowed for fishing on the north bank of the Red Cedar between the Sparty statue and the corner of Brody Hall.

It was approved in 2012 and was the first time fishing was allowed on campus since the 1960’s.

The amendment expired on Monday and the Board of Trustees will decide whether to continue to extend it.

The Michigan DNR says the Red Cedar has several species of game fish including Bass, Pike and Sunfish.
