Lake Vermilion Fisheries Plan

Lake Vermilion Fisheries plan covering the 2017-2022 window is aimed at preserving Lake Vermilion as a sustainable, multi-species fishery.  In addition to addressing fish populations, it also focuses on AIS (aquatic invasive species), habitat, double-crested cormorants and fishing tournaments, incorporating data collected over the past twenty years.
