Residents interested in learning about or commenting on Minnesota Department of Natural Resources strategies for managing Finland area lakes and streams have until March 22 to ask questions or submit comments.
“Management plans describe the past, present and desired future conditions of the waters,” said Alan Anderson, the Finland area fisheries supervisor. “The plans identify specific management activities planned for that lake or stream in the next five to 20 years.”
Every year, DNR fisheries staff prepares or revises individual lake and stream management plans for several waters in each management area. In the Finland area, plans for the following lakes and streams will be reviewed:
- Lupus Lake
- Silver Island Lake
- Perent Lake (BWCA)
- Micmac Lake (Tettegouche State Park)
- Crosscut Lake
- Delay Lake
- Shoofly Lake
- Grouse Lake
- Shamrock Lake
- Sullivan Lake
- Nipisiquit Lake (Tettegouche)
- Kit Creek
- Big Thirtynine Creek
- Little Thirtynine Creek
People can review current plans for lakes and streams in the area as well as recent fish population assessment information at the DNR’s Finland area fisheries office at 6686 Highway 1. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Individuals also may call 353-7591 or e-mail alan. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Public comments on lake and stream management plans will be taken through March 22 and may be submitted via mail or e-mail. Suggestions for management of any of the other lakes and streams in the Finland area are welcome at any time and will be considered when those plans are due for review.
