CO Craig Miska (Ortonville) checked AIS, angling, boating, and OHV activity during the week. An out of season trapping complaint was investigated. Annual training was attended at Camp Ripley. This officer spent time picking up litter left by shore anglers. The amount of litter seen by this officer is unacceptable. Angling and ATV violations were encountered.
