DNR Fisheries continues stream and lake surveys in October

Thu, 09/29/2016 - 12:16pm

Fisheries staff from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Grand Marais area office will conduct surveys and assessments on several Cook County lakes and streams during the next few months.

Survey results are reviewed and incorporated into individual lake and stream management plans. The plans identify goals for key species in the lake and outline specific management activities. They are typically revised every six to 10 years. All current lake and stream management plans for the Grand Marais area are available at the area office, and copies can be provided upon request. Public comments and suggestions for management of these waters are welcomed at any time.

October 3 - Survey Moosehorn and Shoe lakes.

October 10 - Survey Pine Mountain Lake, lake trout spawn-take in Mountain Lake.

October 17 - Survey Pancore and Olson lakes, complete lake trout spawn on Mountain Lake.

These survey plans are tentative. Lakes and streams may be added or dropped and timing may change. Questions and general information about area lakes and streams can be addressed to the DNR’s Grand Marais area fisheries office at 1356 Highway 61 E., Grand Marais, MN 55604. Questions also can be submitted by calling 218-387-6021 (note new number) or emailing grandmarais.fisheries@state.mn.us.
