History & Status of the Fishery

DUE TO THE WINTERKILL SITUATION AND SHALLOW DEPTH, IT IS SUSPECTED THAT MANY OF THE FISH THAT SPEND THE SUMMER IN BIG RICE LAKE MOVE INTO THE WILLOW RIVER AND ALSO UPSTREAM TO THE PUGHOLES DURING THE FALL AND WINTER MONTHS. DURING THE EARLY SPRING MONTHS MANY FISH RETURN TO BIG RICE. NORTHERN PIKE ARE ABUNDANT WITH AVERAGE GROWTH RATES. THE NUMBER OF WALLEYES SAMPLED IN THIS SURVEY WAS QUITE SURPRISING CONSIDERING THE CONDITIONS THAT EXIST IN THIS LAKE. HOWEVER, GOOD AREAS DO EXIST IN THE WILLOW RIVER AND THE PUGHOLE LAKES.
