New lake management plan in the works
Working with stakeholders and citizens, the DNR is finalizing a new management plan for Cass Lake.
The plan outlines the proposed five-year fish population objectives and fisheries management actions for Cass Lake and connected waters on the Cass Lake chain. While the plan focuses on Cass Lake management, fish populations and anglers move throughout connected waters, meaning that any management action on one basin affects the others.
Recommendations from a 14-member Cass Lake Fisheries Input Group, which included representation from a number of the connected waters on the chain, are included in the plan.
