OutdoorMN News - DNR seeks comments on Duluth area lake and stream management plans

1 post in this topic

Citizens interested in learning about or commenting on Minnesota Department of Natural Resources strategies for managing Duluth area lakes and streams have until March 1 to ask questions or submit comments.

“Management plans describe the past, present and desired future conditions of the waters,” said Deserae Hendrickson, Duluth area fisheries manager. “The plans identify specific management activities planned for that lake or stream in the next five to 20 years.”

Every year DNR fisheries staff prepares or revises individual lake and stream management plans for several waters in each management area. In the Duluth area, plans for the following lakes and streams will reviewed:

Lakes
Hanging Horn Lake (Carlton County) – changing to primary management for rainbow and brown trout.
Twin Lakes (City of Duluth) – increased stocking due to addition of lower basin for trout management.
Bassett, Harris, Leora, Murphy, and West Twin Lakes (St. Louis County) – amendment to existing plan with stocking adjustments and/or changes to sampling frequency.
Sand Lake (Carlton County) – amendment to existing plan adding reintroductory stocking following winterkill events.

Streams
Chester Creek (City of Duluth) – amendment to existing plan changing stocking from brook trout to brown trout.
Lester River (St. Louis County) – amendment to existing plan detailing stocking changes.
St. Louis River (Carlton County) – amendment to existing plan for reach within Jay Cooke State Park discontinuing brown trout stocking.
Us-Kab-Wan-Ka River (St. Louis County) – amendment to existing plan to change from brown trout to brook trout management.

Interested parties can review current plans for lakes and streams in the area as well as recent fish population assessment information at the DNR’s Duluth area fisheries office, 5351 N. Shore Drive in Duluth. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. People may call 218-302-3267 or  email Pam Hetland at pam.hetland@state.mn.us to request a copy of a plan or submit comments on a plan.

Public comments on management of Duluth area lakes and streams will be taken through Wednesday, March 1.  Suggestions for management of any of the other lakes and streams in the Duluth area are welcome at any time and will be considered when those plans are due for review.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
