Okay,

So what is actually happening on this lake in the upcoming year? Restoring the Princeton dam and some more netting of the carp?

I’ll go back to Lunker Mafia’s post...as a few others here have said: Great post! While much of what you wrote is no longer possible on our lake, the theme of your post is right on! Thank you for stating these ideals. If only more could realize the need for managing the lake for its own health, not their selfish interests, all would benefit. And Puckaway would then be closer to its historic health for ALL to enjoy.

So glad to have this discussion as I’m really ready to open up my place. Love to fish with any of you “posters” but in my boat it’s strictly catch and release. These long winters make it tough on us soft water fishermen, sorry ladies fisher people! 

This is what I do in the winter.

Just an FYI on the carp netting. They have been still netting on the east river this fall and winter. I know they did one pull that yielded around 20,000 lbs of carp. I believe they are going to start netting again now that the ice has cleared from the river.

I agree with almost everything that is being said.   The Carp are an issue the Milfoil also, but the Dam has needed to be replaced since the mid- 80's and finally it will be done this year.    Timeline is presented on www.lakepuckaway.com  - Whats New Tab .   I am a home owner on the lake for 45 years and glad the dam will finally be repaired and it will be a fixed dam so No Boards.  The only variance to water level will be from Mother Nature.   Also the dam will have a fish ladder like the Buffalo Lake dam so fish can roam from the Fox River below all the way up to Buffalo Lake.

Lunker-Abduction, I agree on the carp. I have told the DNR it's the carp stupid for years. I definitely have seen an increase in vegetation on our shore and other areas of the lake. I don't see the carp cruising our shore like they use to. They did stop netting last year and said it was because they didn't see a population of carp that would merit their effort.

No not comparing milfoil to wild rice. I cringe at the fact it’s in our lake and will distroy it’s beauty like Buffalo and Montello lakes. But fish do use it for shelter. I was thinking if wild rice was abundant up till the 50’s and the dam was there guess we can’t blame the “dam” dam. Let’s fix the dam kill the milfoil, cormorants and carp and suck down a few bruski’s.
