History & Status of the Fishery
The West Two Rivers Reservoir (WTRR) is located two miles south of the town of Mountain Iron with its access via a concrete ramp on the northwest shore at the end of Co Rd 761. This 713 acre reservoir has a maximum depth of 27.0 feet and the water color at the time of the survey was green with an algae bloom. On June 17, 2013 the reservoir was thermally stratified with a surface temperature of 67F, and 50F at a depth of 19.0 feet. Adequate oxygen for fish was present to a depth of 13.5 feet. The overall gillnet catch rate for all fish combined was 68.3 fish/net, which is lower than the historic average of 108.4 fish/net. The overall trapnet catch rate for all fish combined was 135.7 fish/net, which is very close to the historic average. Black and brown bullheads made up 71% of the gillnet and 91% of the trapnet catches. The main gamefish sampled were northern pike and panfish. The northern pike gillnet catch rate was 5.5 fish/net which is better than half of other similar lakes throughout the state. The average weight was quite impressive at 4.3 lbs/fish. Average length was 25.0 inches which is the second highest on record for the reservoir. Lengths ranged from 13.0 to 39.0 inches with this survey capturing the largest pike specimen ever recorded on the lake. Growth was average when compared to other pike lakes in the Tower Fisheries Management Area. Ages ranged from 1 to 10 years old. Of 33 pike examined for diseases and parasites, 12 (36%) were infested with neascus (black spot). Forty seven black crappie were captured for a catch rate of 5.3 fish/trap net which is better than half of other similar lakes throughout the state. The average weight was 0.4 lb/fish and the average length was 8.0 inches which is the highest on record. Lengths ranged from 5.0 to 13.0 inches. Growth rates seem quite good when compared to other crappie lakes in the Tower Area. Ages ranged from 2 to 8 years old. No diseases or parasites were detected on any of the sampled black crappie. The yellow perch gillnet catch rate was 3.2 fish/net which is slightly below the lakes historical average. Average weight was 0.1 lb/fish which was somewhat small when compared to other similar lakes throughout the state. Lengths ranged from 6.0 to 8.0 inches with an average of 6.5 inches. Black bullhead gillnet and trapnet catches dominated both gear types and were extremely high when compared to other similar lakes throughout the state. Historically both of these catch rates have been quite high with an average gillnet catch rate of 72.5 fish/net and trapnet catch rate of 91.9 fish/net. Lengths ranged from 4.0 to 11.5 inches with an average of 7.5 inches. The brown bullhead catches were also fairly substantial: 5.3 fish/gill net and 22.7 fish/trap net. Lengths from the trap net caught fish ranged from 4.0 to 12.0 inches with an average of 10.0 inches, showing a very slight increase in sizes through time. Additional fish species sampled in trap nets included pumpkinseed, green sunfish, hybrid sunfish, and golden shiner.
