People and business in the area who enjoy fishing Big Green Lake have
 organized a council to help improve the cold water fishery. Many of these have donated money and time and because of this there will be 23,000 RE Rainbow stocked this Sept. in Big Green Lake.
They should be creel ready by next year.
Many thanks to all who have helped with this project.
Here are some photos of the RE at the hatchery.

END OF ICE SEASON

We are now off the ice.
It was a very short season due to ice conditions and the warm weather this winter.
We only had two days over the trout grounds, and about ten days over more shallow depth areas
 We did well there fishing for the Cisco and Perch.
Here are a few photos taken by one of our fisherman.

ICE CONDITIONS ON BIG GREEN LAKE FEB 1 2016

The ice has been marginal since the east half of the lake froze during the last cold spell we had.
There is still open water on the west end.
 We have walking ice and some people are tent fishing. The bays are froze enough for some perch and blue gill fishing.
We are checking the ice  over the deep water again today, to see if it is safe for larger shanties.
Check back again for updates.
