Lake Superior Marine UnitLast updated: 2018-05-23
CO Keith Olson (Lake Superior Marine Unit) worked the spring fish run along the North Shore during the week. He reports the rivers are still taking decent runs of fish, water levels have dropped, and rain is needed. CO Olson fielded several questions and comments on the new northern pike regulations for NE MN, checked shore anglers on the lakes north of Duluth with many having success on the walleyes still in the shallower waters. Officer Olson also fielded complaints of illegal equipment used for smelting along park point and worked ATV and fire enforcement inland.
CO Matt Miller (Lake Superior Marine Unit) checked anglers on Lake Superior and the St. Louis River. Special regulation sections of the synopsis are worth a read this time of year; several people were found in violation of special regulations on the river. Superior is putting out some salmon and lake trout on the surface, along with a rare brown trout. Work was completed on Academy training regarding watercraft operation. Enforcement action was taken for angling and boating violations.
Lake Superior Unit vacant.
