No Trout in Square Lake this year

Responding to the concerns of the District, Square Lake homeowners,and May Township, the Department of Natural Resources will not stock rainbow trout in Square Lake this year.  In his letter to the District, Brad Parsons, Central Region Fisheries Manager states," Given the concerns raised from your group and others, our desire to work closely with local partners, and our desire to use the best science available to guide our management decisions, we did not feel we could reach agreement on a stocking strategy before a spring stocking would take place.  In the next year, we will gather more information to help guide our decision with trout management on Square Lake."  The District hopes to evaluate the information to help the DNR in its future decisions.
