Windom Area: Fishing Opportunities

Each year the Windom area fisheries office conducts full lake surveys, fish population assessments and other special assessments to monitor fish populations and other non-fish lake characteristics.  Here we have posted some of the 80 lakes in the ten counties we cover that you might like to try based on the data we have collected over the past few years.  If you are interested in further information please contact us.
