If you are bringing your own boat to our lake, please be sure to:
Remove all vegetation and clean your boat before moving it from one body of water to another. Pull your plug & drain the water from your boat. It helps keep our waters safe and it’s also the law. Avoid a ticket if you are pulled over by the police. Also, drain water from live wells, bilge, bait buckets etc.
Prevent the spread of spiny water fleas. These are a species of zooplankton from Eurasia that threaten the park’s aquatic ecosystems by competing with native fish for food. Spiny water fleas and their eggs can be spread by bait buckets, anchor ropes, fishing line, boats, waders, nets and any other gear that has come in contact with infested waters.
Eurasian watermilfoil is an invasive aquatic plant. It interferes with boating, fishing and swimming and crowds out native plants. Even tiny fragments of this plant can grow into a new plant. Remove all vegetation and clean your boat before moving it from one body of water to another.
