CO Keith Olson (Lake Superior Marine Unit) spent time on the north shore tributaries checking trout anglers and smelters in the evenings. The needed rain and milder temps spurred the smelt in the Duluth area to run in the rivers and along park point. CO Olson worked a detail focusing on rivers and smelting activity over the weekend. He also checked inland areas for ATV activities and trail conditions with the wetter conditions.
CO Matt Miller (Lake Superior Marine Unit) checked river anglers and shore casters in a week with weather that was not angler-friendly. Fish spawning activity was monitored and smelters checked late at night. The weekend saw good success for the smelt run. Fire danger has subsided a bit with recent rain and snow. Officer Miller took enforcement activity for angling violations.
Lake Superior Unit vacant.
