You can thank the concerned citizens and the MN DNR that come together on South Lindstrom Lake in the early 1940’s to help save the fish. You can reap the rewards of their hard work this fishing opener!
We received notification from the MN DNR Area Fisheries Supervisor, Leslie George that the Fond Du Lac band will be spearing on South Lindstrom and Chisago Lake this evening, Wednesday, April 24th. Our area Conservation Officer has been made aware of this legal tribal harvest activity. This activity is also monitored by the MN DNR Fisheries staff.
Leslie George will be the guest speaker at our annual meeting, which is scheduled for Saturday, May 4th from 10:30 – noon at the Chisago Lakes Township Hall in Lindstrom. Her informational presentation will cover Indian Treaty Rights, fish stocking in our area lakes and her department’s review of the large-mouth bass slot limit on Chisago and South Lindstrom. Hope you plan to join us!
The Chisago Lakes Lions Club voted tonight to cancel the Family Crappie Tournament that was scheduled for May 5th. The tournament requires that the ice on the lake be out and there is a good possibility that will not happen in time. Look for the event to be held next year!

What you say, haven’t we had enough of winter? Sure by now, most of us are dreaming over seed catalogs or planning a warm weather getaway but there a number of Minnesotans that relish the cold and the snow. If that is your thing, you need to mark January 25th – 28th on your calendar. Details can be found on the Chisago Lakes Chamber of Commerce’s website:
This weekend is a great time to fish – especially if you fish with a kid. Don’t miss Take a Kid Fishing Weekend Friday, June 9, to Sunday, June 11! Minnesota residents age 16 or older can fish without licenses if they take children 15 or younger fishing.
Learning to fish can be as easy as rounding up some basic equipment and casting a line.
