If you like fishing Little Muskego (when it opens again) please attend the Muskego Common Council meeting at Muskego City hall 6pm on Tuesday 2-13.
With the lake drawdown, approximately 50 lakeshore residents have contracted with a dredging company to remove muck from the lake. This would create some great fish habitat- deeper, hard bottom areas without thick weeds. In most cases, it involves removing approx. 3 feet of soft muck down to a hard clay or rock bottom, in areas from about 20 to 50 feet square. Great fish habitat when surrounded by the thick weeds common in this lake. It's entirely paid for by the property owners- no tax money involved.
Unfortunately the city is requiring an unusually high security bond for potential road damage to allow trucking out the dredged muck. So high that it makes the project unfeasible. We're trying to put some pressure on the city to reduce this to a "normal" bond amount so the project can continue.
DNR approval is in process as well. that doesn't look like it will be a problem.
If you can spare an hour or so Tuesday night, come on out and support improving the lake's fish habitat. It's important that the city council hears from all kinds of recreational lake users.
Otherwise if you drop them an email or give them a call, it's appreciated as well. 262-682-0009 Little Muskego Lake District. or the Mayor at 262-679-5675 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks all and see ya out on Little M CPR'ing a pile of bass next spring!
