Catfish Lake Association Articles of Dissolution

In the event that the Catfish Lake Association votes to fold into ERCLA, we have to have Articles in place.  This is the document.

I invite discussion on the topic.  CLA Resolution

Catfish Lake Ice Out

The date of the unofficial ice out for Catfish Lake was April 9.  I did see a pontoon boat “ice breaking” the small areas of ice still remaining on April 8.  Here is a photo from April 6 and another photo from April 9.  It never ceases to amaze me how fast things can change!  I consider tax day “normal” for an ice out.  We have seen ice outs in March and we have seen it come very late, like in May.  So this is a bit early!

Ice-Up 2016

I did not get to see it first hand but the western bay was pretty much all ice December 8.  This am I drove over the bridge and I did not see any open water in the northern end of the lake.  I am calling the Catfish Lake Ice-Up on Thursday December 8.  A bit overdue but we have some real cold stuff in the forecast.  We should be making a lot of ice in the next week.  This is a photo looking west from Deer Point.

Eurasian Milfoil Update – Eagle River Chain, 2016

How did we do with milfoil?  We are doing pretty good.  The good news is that the DNR says that we are doing so well that they will not fund any more Eurasian Milfoil treatments after 2017.  The bad news, the DNR will not fund any more Eurasian Milfoil treatments.  Essentially, we have to wait until the milfoil comes back (it will) to start finding it again.

Here is the report from Eddie Heath of Onterra, the consultant we use to monitor milfoil on the chain.
