Shore Fishing:

The City of Mahtomedi owns property on the north end of the lake, but fishing there is limited by heavy vegetation growth for most of the year.


Management Plans:

  1. Monitor winter oxygen levels as needed.
  2. Population assessment/lake survey as needed, if staff is available.
  3. Encourage Mahtomedi or Pine Springs to develop public access to this lake.

Comments:

Access to this area is limited to undeveloped City of Mahtomedi property on the north shore of the lake. Water quality here is fair at best. The lake has been know to have summer oxygen depletion and winterkill.
