Professional Carp Fisherman.

The RCD will have a commercial fisherman here on Sunday afternoon and Monday morning (5/22-23) to net carp on the lake. Please be aware of his nets, they will be marked. Avoid the area where the nets are set. This is for the boaters safety, to protect the nets, and allows him the opportunity to catch more carp. As in the past, he will be moving the nets several times during the day. Thank you for your cooperation. Bill Winebaugh RCD PresidentThe RCD office will be closed 5/16 thru 5/19.

Hydraulic Dredging and Silt Basin Construction

Over the years, silt and sediment has built up on the lakebed which reduces the depth of the waterways making boating more difficult, spurs algae growth and aquatic weed infestations, and leads to poor conditions for fish. Without thoughtful action now, our beloved Lost Lake will eventually become silted in.
