Anglers and other interested parties are welcome to attend the meeting on Thursday, July 18 from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the Colvin Town Hall in Makinen.

“We appreciate the opportunity to talk directly with anglers and to hear about their experiences on the reservoir,” Deserae Hendrickson, DNR Duluth area fisheries manager said in the release. “Public informational meetings like this allow anglers to see the survey and creel information first-hand, and give us input that may not be represented in our surveys.”      
Organizers say the meeting is not a regulation review meeting and no special fishing regulation changes are currently being proposed.

If you are unable to attend the July 18 meeting in Makinen, there will be another opportunity to see this information at an August meeting in Duluth.  Questions regarding the July and August meetings can be directed to the Duluth area fisheries office at 218- 302-3264 or email
