Waukau Creek Salmon

Fish migration
Small northern pike running the rapids

Fish were once again heading up Waukau Creek to try and spawn in Rush Lake.  Most will be blocked by the carp barrier, but they try until they are exhausted.  Yellow perch, northern pike, white sucker, and other species of sucker all play salmon as they attempt to run the rapids.

Talk on White Pelicans and Double-Crested Cormorants

Art Techlow III, DNR biologist, will discuss the exploding population of white pelicans and double-crested cormorants in the area— what’s true, and what’s not—and what the DNR is doing to help manage these large birds.

This is a Lakes Council Speaker Series event. The public is invited.
