Accomplishments we made over the years to maintain, preserve, restore and improve the
quality of life for all that use the lake, including wildlife and vegetation as well as for us and
our children and grandchildren. Some of the accomplishments include: Developing the fish
management plan/stocking/cribs and monitoring-the musky creel charting, monitoring the
spearing efforts, testing and monitoring the water quality/oxygen levels, wildlife
preservation-loons, eagles and swallows nesting and habitat, monitoring the good vegetation
versus any invasive aquatic species, purchasing buoys, 2 way radio and defibrillators,
sending members to CPR & First Aid Courses, we were also instrumental in obtaining the
“no fishing from bridge” and 30-35 mph signs, ATV signs, maintaining our shorelines,
(natural buffer), and maintaining the posting at the boat landings. Donations to the Local
First Responders. Saving Brush island from erosion by rip rapping.
