CO Vuthy Pril (ELCOP) checked trout ice anglers over the weekend. He worked snowmobile and ATV enforcement on area lakes and trails. He also investigated a complaint of a possible small game violation in Ramsey County and assisted with the Wall of Shame TIP trailer.
CO Jake Willis (Maplewood) had a busy week with many people out enjoying the winter weather. With the good ice conditions there were many anglers out, and with the added snow the snowmobile trails have vastly improved. CO Willis also spoke with a Minnesota Studies class at North St. Paul High School about the career path of a conservation officer. Enforcement action was taken for no license in possession, no fishing license, too many lines, fishing prior to legal hours on a designated trout lake, fail to display ATV registration, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
