Survey and population assessment schedule - 2020

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.
