Fish Study

 

 
 

As a continuation of the fisheries study conducted on our lake chain last year, DNR technicians conducted mark-recapture studies in late May to estimate the musky population.  About 150 muskies were marked in the chain last year and the percentage of recaptured fish is used to estimate the adult population.  Results from last year's study should be available this summer.
