HISTORY AND STATUS OF FISHERY

Eagles Nest Lake One (EN1) is located approximately 9 miles NE of Tower. This clear water lake is highly developed by area standards with homes and cabins frequently appearing near the shorelines. There is a public access with a concrete planked boat ramp located on Eagles Nest Lake Two off CR 599. A navigable channel connects the two lakes and boaters should be cautious on both lakes since rock piles are common, most of which are unmarked. In terms of total numbers of fish per net, the 2015 catch on EN1 was the lowest on record for both gill nets and trap nets. Smallmouth bass and rock bass were however sampled in above average numbers. Bluegill made up 77 percent of the trap net catch and relatively low numbers of black crappie were also observed. Walleye numbers and average size were the lowest since fingerling stocking began in 1991. No smelt were sampled which is the first time since smelt netting began in 1980 that this has occurred. Rusty crayfish abundance appeared to decline in 2015. Both rusty crayfish and smelt are non-native species that were likely unintentionally introduced as bait. Smallmouth bass in 2015 were sampled by electrofishing, gill nets and trap nets. Smallmouth numbers in the gill nets were higher than the historic average of 3.6/gill net and higher than in other similar area lakes. The average smallmouth sampled from the gill nets was a respectable 15.8 inches or about 8 years old and the largest smallmouth was 20 inches long. Smallmouth made up 75% of the electrofishing catch and the remainder were largemouth. The average smallmouth sampled by electrofishing was 13 inches long with the largest almost 19 inches long. The average largemouth was also 13 inches long up to a maximum size of 18 inches. Walleye numbers in 2015 were below the historic average of 6.3/gill net and below average compared to other similar area lakes. The average walleye sampled was 15.9 inches long (4 years old) which is smaller than the historic average of 18 inches long. The largest walleye was 22.1 inches long. Seventy-four percent of the walleye aged were from stocked year classes. Bluegill numbers in 2015 were well below the historic average of 69.6/trap net but above average 7.9/trap net compared to other similar area lakes. The average bluegill sampled was 4.9 inches long which is smaller than the historic average length of 5.5 inches. Few bluegill from the trap nets were more than 8 inches long. Rusty crayfish have removed much aquatic vegetation and this may be negatively effecting bluegill since this vegetation provides a preferred habitat. Black crappie numbers in 2015 were low but typically these fish do not get sampled very well with trap nets and gill nets. The few crapppie sampled were of good size.
