CO Brandon McGaw (Mora) checked anglers during the week. All lakes are being driven on by most types of vehicles. Fishing success has varied with some pan fish being caught.

CO Phil Mohs (Center City) worked snowmobile, ice fishing activity, and a deer investigation. Snowmobilers got some much needed snow and many hit the trails. Several anglers reported unattended lines on an area lake. While reeling in a walleye, one of the anglers noticed another fishing line tangled in his line. After pulling his fish in, the angler pulled up the other line to find a walleye hooked on the line that had been left unattended in a nearby fish house. Enforcement action was taken for fishing without a license, unattended lines, extra lines, careless driving, and numerous snowmobile violations.

CO Rick Reller (Buffalo) checked area ice fishermen and snowmobilers this week. With the new snow the snowmobilers finally were able to use the groomed trails in the area. Ice fishermen have been having some success with the pan fish and northerns, but walleyes are still being elusive in the area.

CO Tony Musatov (Sauk Rapids) checked ice anglers and snowmobilers. Violations were found for no angling license, no snowmobile registration, and no snowmobile safety certificate. A trespass complaint was received on a predator hunter and follow up was done on an illegal lend/borrow deer case.

CO Mitch Sladek (Big Lake) worked snowmobilers on area trails. He issued written warnings and summons for trespassing, no registration, failure to display registration, and failure to transfer ownership. He met with the county attorney on a big game case. He assisted a Wyoming Game Warden on a possible violation and responded to a number of injured swans.
