Lake Survey Results

Survey and Population Assessment Results - 2016

Each year the Windom Area Fisheries Office conducts standard lake surveys, targeted fish sampling, Winterkill Surveys, and other assessments to monitor fish populations and other non-fish lake characteristics.  Here we have preliminary netting results for your information. Click on the name of the lake to see a PDF version of the preliminary netting results. Lakes with a month in parenthesis indicate when the survey will be conducted and uploaded to the website. If you are interested in further information please contact the Windom Area Fisheries Office.
