Reader's View: Story lacked info on lakes, fish
As someone who has been to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and who has boated and fished there, I felt the Sept. 22 story, “ In a region dominated by walleye, BWCAW guide specializes in trout, ” didn’t give enough information about what kinds of boats can be on what lakes. Specifically, on what lakes are motorized boats allowed?
The story only talked about one specific lake, Trout Lake, which is a lake that can have motorized boats. But how and where can you find out what other lakes can have motorized boats? Is there a way for people who go up to the BWCAW to find out?
Also, about the fish: how do you know what fish are in what lake? How do you know if new fish are in a lake? Like, I understand that the fish population can reproduce, but how does the guide featured in the story, Lonnie Johnson, find other fish that he never found before? Or has he found other fish and just never stated it?
I would just like to see some more information on what kind of fish can be found in what lakes. And I would especially want to see what kinds of boats can go on what lakes and a discussion of more lakes than just one of the so many in the BWCAW.
