The Boulder Birding Big Day will be 7 to 11 a.m. May 12 at the Boulder Lake Environmental Learning Center.
Now through Friday – Wisconsin early inland catch-and-release trout season.
The Knife River fish trap, used by biologists to monitor the river's steelhead rainbow trout spawning run, opened for business Monday.
Wisconsin's 2018 inland fishing season opens Saturday following a cold and snowy April. Many lakes in northern Wisconsin remain ice-covered.
Here's how it begins: I leave home with a notebook in my pocket and camera gear in my backpack.
Well, we're not headed up to the canoe country to go lake trout fishing this spring. Or so it appears. The ice has us. Four of us make the trip each spring, close on the heels of ice-out, when the fish are hungry. We paddle across the border, into the Canadian wilderness, where the lake trout season is already open. Typically, we make the trip in early May, sometimes even starting in late April.
The St. Louis River has a healthy population of adult lake sturgeon, but those fish are not producing the numbers of young fish that biologists had hoped to see. Few adult females are returning to spawn, and biologists have found little evidence of young sturgeon being produced, said Dan Wilfond, fisheries specialist with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources at French River.
Polar explorer Will Steger has encountered deep snow and some slow going in the first month of his planned 70-day, 1,000-mile solo trek from Black Lake in northern Saskatchewan to Baker Lake near Hudson Bay.
A recently completed survey on Mille Lacs Lake shows that the lake's smallmouth bass population is about 67,000 – and those are just the ones longer than 12 inches.
