Dave Sino

The Lake of the Falls Association board of directors and all of our members extend our heartfelt sympathy to the family of long-time member Dave Sino, who passed away on the morning of September 2. Dave served on the LOFA board from 2017-2023, and was a good friend and neighbor to many around the lake. He will be greatly missed.

 

Beaver’s Resort will host a celebration of life in remembrance of Dave on Saturday, October 14 from 1:00 to 4:00. Memorials may be sent to Mercer Area Ambulance & Rescue, P.O. Box 409, Mercer, WI 54547. Condolences can be posted at www.bolgerfuneral.com.

Curly leaf pondweed wrap-up, Fall meeting minutes, and some swans

Thanks to the Iron County Land and Water Conservation Department and our friends upriver on Pike Lake, the aquatic invasive plant Curly Leaf Pondweed has been kept out of Lake of the Falls  for another year. These links go to the Pike Lake Neighbors, Inc. website and  include a detailed overview of the problem and what Zach Wilson, his summer crew, and volunteers from Pike Lake (and a few from Lake of the Falls) have done to keep it under control in 2021. It has been a huge effort and we all owe a big thank you to the folks around Pike for the dedication and hard work they have put in to try and keep CLP contained. Here is a map showing where the largest patches CLP were found in Pike Lake this summer. A large patch very close to the Turtle River was cleared in July and more patches were pulled through the end of August.

 

This problem isn’t going to go away and we will need more volunteers to help pull weeds next summer! Details will be available when we start to organize again in the spring.

Together again

The Lake of the Falls Association Membership Meeting and Annual Picnic on Sunday couldn’t have been nicer with 29 people attending the meeting and 47 at the picnic. It was great to get back together with everyone after such a long absence and find out what’s been going on around the lake! Thanks to Board President Jan Tesch for organizing everything and to Tom and Nikki at Beaver’s for providing the great food.

 

Board member Bill Dalpiaz reported on his latest conversation with WDNR Fisheries Biologist Zach Lawson about the recent Walleye count in the lake; the official results of the test, including population estimates, can be read here. And board member Cindy Moriarity talked about the aquatic invasive plant Curly Leaf Pondweed, which is present upriver and is a serious threat to Lake of the Falls, and managed to recruit four new volunteers to help next summer in our effort to keep it under control. Yay!
