Windom fisheries survey schedule

Survey and population assessment schedule - 2021

Each year the Windom Area Fisheries Office conducts standard lake surveys (SD), river surveys (RS), and other special assessments (TS & IBI) to monitor fish populations and other non-fish lake characteristics. Here we have posted our tentative schedule for your information. Note: this schedule is subject to change depending on weather, staff availability and other unforeseen factors. If you are interested in further information or would like to volunteer to assist in sampling please contact the Windom Area Fisheries Office.
