HISTORY AND STATUS OF FISHERY

although in limited numbers. The northern pike that are sampled
in the lake do tend to be quality size fish; during the last 2
assessments pike up to 32 inches long have been sampled.

The 2004 assessment did document an increase in the number of
bluegills however the size structure has gone downhill from what
was seen in 1998. The majority of the bluegills (90%) were
between 3.5 and 5.0 inches long, with no fish captured exceeding
6 inches in length. The black crappie abundance has hit an all
time low for the lake. The size structure of the crappie
population resembles the ones from previous assessments; most
fish were 6 to 8 inches in length with a few fish exceeding 12
inches. The largest fish measured 13.9 inches long and weighed
1.25 pounds. Walleyes and yellow perch were also present, but
neither species were abundant enough to provide a fishable
population. The absence of black bullheads, hybrid sunfish and
very low abundance of green sunfish are a good sign for the lake
as all three of these species have provided problems for
Lanesboro Mill Pond in the past.

Numerous changes have taken place in and around the mill pond
since the previous assessment. Most notably would be the
installation of a floating fishing pier installed by the State of
Minnesota on the north end of the lake. The entire north shore
has also been turned into a parking lot along with a trail that
connects it to an existing recreational trail that tranverses the
area. The fishing pressure has increased dramatically as a
result of these 2 major changes. Overall the fish populations in
the Lanesboro Mill Pond have taken a downward turn in recent
years with very few harvestable size fish being available to
anglers. With some proactive management (as described in the
lake management plan) the lake has the potential to be a very
good urban fishery located within the Lanesboro City Limits and
adjacent to a high use recreational trail.
