Sgt. Keith Olson (Lake Superior Marine Unit) checked North Shore anglers in the Duluth and Two Harbors area. Smelters checked along Park Point. He attended a Lake Superior fisheries meeting in regards to the future management plan. He worked an ATV complaint in the Canyon area. He assisted district officers with a firearms safety field day north of Duluth. Olson also checked on an area lake for spring fish run activities.
CO Matt Miller (Lake Superior Unit) checked steelhead anglers and smelters. Fish run activities were monitored, and burning violations were checked. Low water levels in some lakes are leading to violations of vehicles operating below the high water mark. Enforcement action taken for angling violations.
CO Ter Meer (Marine Unit) checked Lake Superior boaters and anglers, shore and river anglers and smelters along Lake Superior. There have been a few days of good fishing in the rivers and some boaters are catching salmon as well. Only seen smelt in numbers from those using seines on Park Point, but they are having to work for them. He assisted on a perimeter where the driver of a stolen vehicle fled. He responded to some tip calls throughout the week. Enforcement action taken for angling, boating, and litter violations.
