Here is the February, 2016 issue of Lake Tides. Lake Tides is produced by the UW Extension and is aimed at people who love lakes! The bobcat piece is very interesting!
It has been an odd year. We froze up on 11-29-15. The lake then opened up this past week. It was navigable on Thursday 12-17-15. It then froze up again despite the windy conditions on 12-19-15. We will see what happens next!!
It appears that Catfish Lake is frozen up this morning 11-29-15. There was only a small portion of open water in the western section of the lake when this photo was taken. This morning it is froze up. We are in the hard water season!
Here is the Onterra presentation from the November 12, 2015 to the Unified Lower Eagle River Chain of Lakes Association. Onterra is the lakes partner that monitors aquatic invasives like Eurasion Water Milfoil (EWM). According to Onterra, our treatments have been successful enough to not perform treatments in 2016.
