The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking comments on individual fisheries lake [and stream] management plans for 13 lakes in Cass and Crow Wing counties. 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 10 years.
The management plans available for review at this time are for Gull, Margaret, Upper Gull, and Marion Lakes in Cass County; and Allen, Clearwater, Hubert, Mayo, Round, Sebie, Shirt, and Upper South Long Lakes and Section 6 Mine Pit Lake in Crow Wing County.
These draft plans are available for review and comment, at the Brainerd Area Fisheries Office at 1601 Minnesota Drive, Brainerd, MN, 5640, 218-828-2550. The comment period will be open through March 13, 2009.
