After more than 35 years with the Department of Natural Resources, Fisheries Division Chief Jim Dexter is pulling the plug. He plans to retire in April – “the day before the trout opener,” he said – a date that he says was “strategically chosen.” A 1983 graduate of Michigan State University, Dexter held a series of temporary fisheries jobs at state and federal agencies and universities before joining the Indiana DNR in 1985 as a fisheries technician.
