Fish Sticks - A DNR Project for Improving Lake Habitat
The MLCA Board is interested in pursuing a grant to provide Fish Sticks in our chain only if private parties are interested in this DNR project. We will be bringing the idea to our Annual Meeting and will provide support to anyone who is interested.
According to the DRN, the project is "Fish Sticks" projects are intended to restore woody habitat in lakes by adding trees to the near-shore area. They are large woody habitat structures that use either single trees or trees grouped together. Fish sticks structures are anchored to the shore and are partially or fully submerged near the shoreline of a lake. Fish sticks projects are completed to provide additional fish habitat, as well as to expand fishing opportunities by anglers and provide protection to shorelines. Additional information on fish sticks and the fish sticks implementation process can be found in the Fish Sticks Best Practices Manual. [PDF].
