We just stocked the lake this spring with yellow perch. Please do not keep any yellow perch caught until 2020 because we would like to get 2 spawns out of the new stocking and give them a chance to grow, Thank you!
The Environmental committee has recommended we adopt the recommendations from the fish survey done by Aquatic control.
This will include changing some of the fishing limits to help return the proper balance to the fish population.
