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.
