CO Phil Mohs (Center City) worked fishing, boating and AIS activity throughout the week. Several trespass complaints have been received regarding boaters trespassing on private lake shore property. Lake users are reminded to stay off private lake shore property to avoid trespass penalties. Enforcement action was taken for fishing without a license, illegal length northern pike on North Center Lake, fishing with extra lines and several boating violations .

CO Rick Reller (Buffalo) worked on a landowner disputed about access to public waters this week. A Bear was reported in the Buffalo area which created numerous calls, but it is believed now the Bear has moved out of the area hopefully to a less populated environment that suits all parties better. Enforcement action was taken for angling without a license due to angling privileges being suspended.

CO Brandon McGaw (Mora) checked anglers during the week. Warm weather has also seen an increase in personal watercraft and ATV traffic. A report of a bear cub with a container on its head was taken. A passerby saw the cub and was able to remove the container. Enforcement action was taken on ATV related violations.
