Attention Round Lake Residents and Fishermen!

The DNR has set up fishnets in Round Lake as of 5/11/2015.  

These will be used to count certain types of fish in the lake, primarily panfish.  Along with the count some of the fish may be tagged for further education.  This will require the cooperation of fishermen who catch a fish with a tag.  Instructions are on the tag as to what to do.  Please do not boat near the nets for the duration that they are there.

Thanks to one of our members for pointing out this interesting article just in time for summer:

State View: How your body wash hurts the Great Lakes
Microbeads, tiny plastic particles, often less than a millimeter in size, are packed into personal hygiene products. Being so tiny, they pass through wastewater treatment systems and end up in rivers, lakes and oceans. Read More... 

Bait Dumping Concerns

From the AP John Flesher August 28th, 2014:

“Inadequate regulation of the bait-fish trade and carelessness on the part of anglers may be allowing invasive species – including the feared Asian carp – to reach Great Lakes and inland waterways, according to a scientific paper.”

There is more to this story (Click to read entire article...), but it ultimately comes down to “what can we do?” The answer is …DON’T DUMP LEFTOVER BAIT INTO THE LAKE!!! The LPL has been putting reminders on windshields of cars parked at the public ramp, and plans to post this reminder there for all to see.

Help needed with the LPL Directory

HELP! We need somebody to take over the directory project that gets 
underway in February, and someone to coordinate the advertising as well  
as volunteers to contact advertisers. Margaret Brighton has done a great 
job for many years. Now it is time for someone else to continue this important  
LPL project. For information, call 547-7267.  Click Here! For a detailed description

Join the Lakes Preservation League!

The  lakes are here for all of us to enjoy...but without an organization
committed to lake preservation and improvement, they may not be here for our children.  

The quality of life that we have grown accustomed to cannot be taken for granted.  Many changes take place that affect our lake environment positively or negatively.  We all need an organization that will try to make sure that changes are changes for the better.   

Yearly dues are $25.00 (January 1st though December 31st).
Along with your membership you will receive our monthly newsletter, The Preserver, as well as a subscription to The Michigan Riparian which is published quarterly.
