The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking comments on individual fisheries lake and stream management plans for several lakes in the Finland area. Fisheries managers use the plans to describe the past, present, and future conditions of the lake. The plans identify goals and objectives for the fish community and identify specific management activities planned for the lake in the next 5 to 20 years.
The management plans available for review at this time are:
Cramer Homestead, Dyers, Fourmile, Fourth McDougal, Hare, Organ, Polly, Rat, South McDougal, Swallow, Tee, Trappers, Unnamed (Two Fifty-Four).
Current plans for these lakes and the most recent fish population assessments are available for review at the DNR Fisheries Office, 6686 Hwy 1, Finland. For information, stop in or call 218-353-7591 between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. M-F.
