Anglers who fish in Swift, Chippewa, Kandiyohi, Yellow Medicine, northern Lyon and eastern Lac Qui Parle counties benefit from the management, habitat and oversight work of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources' Spicer area fisheries staff.
Area Fisheries Supervisor Dave Coahran and a staff of six full-time employees manage 40 fishing lakes and 200 miles of rivers and streams. These waters include popular fishing destinations such as Green Lake, Lake Koronis and Foot Lake along with numerous small- and medium-sized glacial and prairie lakes known for excellent bass, walleye, northern pike and panfish angling.
The Spicer crew takes walleye eggs at the New London hatchery.
Lake Surveys and research provide the information used to select appropriate management tools, such as: protecting and restoring habitats and water quality; regulating the harvest; stocking and public education.
