IFW To Hold Informational Meetings about Eagle Lake and St. Froid Lake Fisheries

Anglers interested in learning more about the Eagle Lake and St. Froid Lake fisheries should make plans to attend the two public informational meetings that will focus on each lake. Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife regional fisheries biologists will present information on Eagle Lake and St. Froid Lake separately on the following dates:

Eagle Lake Fisheries Forum Tuesday April 8, 2014, 6:30 p.m. Eagle Lake Elementary School

St. Froid Lake Fisheries Forum Tuesday, April 1, 2014, 6:30 p.m. Winterville Town Office

IFW Regional Fisheries Biologist Frank Frost will lead a presentation focused on the current status of the coldwater fisheries in each lake. Frost will share biological data collected over the years, and explain how and why the data is collected. Frost is the lead fisheries biologist in the IFW Region G Ashland office.

The meetings are designed to gather more information from the public concerning these popular salmon, togue and brook trout fisheries. These are not public hearings concerning proposed rule changes, rather an opportunity for anglers and department staff to learn more about the fisheries and their use by the public.

After the presentation, there will be a question and answer period in an open forum. Along with Frost, other IFW fisheries biologists will be on hand to discuss questions about the Eagle and St. Froid Lake fisheries.
