Voyageurs National Park News Release

May 23, 2007

For Immediate Release

Terry Severson (218) 283-6600


The rainfall received this past weekend and earlier this week over much of northern Minnesota has moderated fire danger for the short term. Rainfall amounts received across Minnesota varied from a trace to almost two inches. Given the rainfall amounts received, Voyageurs National Park has lifted the ban on fires in the park effective noon today.

Once again, visitors can have recreational fires (campfires) in designated metal fire rings. Charcoal fueled fires in metal fire rings and grills are also allowed.

Fires in rock rings are not allowed. Rock rings do not contain fires properly and can allow fire to escape.

The park staff thanks everyone for cooperating with the fire ban during the recent extreme fire danger period.

      I've had my boat freeze in the lake before.  Not fun chiseling it out before winter.  Heading up this weekend for one last soft water trip, unless the water temps are still warm and I dare leave the boat in for deer hunting.

      I've been caught with a boat of snow more than once.  I'll be up there fishing at least a couple more weekends before I pull the plug on open water.  I've still had pretty decent luck every weekend, but the method I caught them has changed most every weekend.  I've caught them on lead core, rigging with large minnows, and jiggin raps.  I already can't wait until spring!

      Thanks Dick! Always hate to pull the boat for the season but hate it even more if I get caught with a boat full of snow! Cliff

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will host a public informational meeting to update interested citizens and anglers on the reproduction study recently completed on Fish Lake Reservoir.  The study involved three years of stocking marked walleye fry to assist in determining the contribution of spawning stocks, natural reproduction, and survival of eggs and fry in Fish Lake Reservoir. These study results will help inform future fish management decisions for Fish Lake Reservoir. The meeting will be held on November 1, 2016 at 6 p.m. at Fredenberg Town Hall, 5104 Fish Lake Road, Duluth MN. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
