Cass Lake

New lake management plan needs your input

Sunrise over northern Minnesota's Cass LakeWorking with stakeholders and citizens, the DNR has drafted a new management plan for Cass Lake and needs your input.

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.

Comments will be accepted through Tuesday, Sept. 3. Online comments are preferred.

All comments will be reviewed and considered in September. The final Cass Lake management plan will be completed in October.
