Don’t forget about the Fish Count Form!

Reposting from 2019, just as a reminder:

Our local DNR Fisheries Biologist Zach Lawson feels that any data on fish that are caught on Lake of the Falls or the Black Lakes will help give a better picture of the numbers and health of our fish populations. While working with him, we have created a form to document catches by our members, their families, and their guests. It gathers most of the same information as a Landing Creel Count at a boat landing which would require many hours of time.

The form is pretty straightforward and needs only the information you have, we expect that not all anglers may know the water temp or if the lake level is high or low. Any information on the form will help, this is not exact science, just a small piece of information that Zach can use to analyze our fish populations and catch rates. Please list all fish, even undersized. If anyone has any questions please e-mail me at: billandnanchome@hotmail.com. (If you need help identifying all the fish you catch, use this handy guide from the Wisconsin DNR.)

The online version of the Fish Count Form is super-easy to use and you can complete it right from your boat!

Our cabin is located at the north end of the lake, near the mouth of the river. It’s very quiet at this end!

Migratory waterfowl, and that bear again

Any of us who were lucky enough to be on the lake for ice-off last May saw an incredible number of waterfowl migrating through our waters. Diana got these great photos of many of them. Our research told us that those little horned grebes aren’t usually common to our area, even as migrants. We were especially excited on the morning when we saw at least 40 loons through the fog, gathering near the edge of the ice.

Welcome, walleye!

Jack, Arch, Mike, and Bob introduced over a thousand walleye from Kalaap Fish Farm to their new home in our lake on Wednesday.  Hopefully, we’ll meet some of them again in a few years!

A special thank you to Arch for the use of his pontoon boat and to Mike and his friend Bob for their assistance.
