Bullhead Removal Program

 In the past, it has been proven on Lake Metonga that when there is an overabundance of bullheads, it negatively impacts the walleye and perch populations. In 2021, the Lake Metonga Fisheries Committee along with Mole Lake Fisheries and the DNR implemented a bullhead removal program. 

In its first year, the 2021 program was a successful year for bullhead removal. Mole Lake Fisheries spent approximately 25 back breaking hours collecting over 12,500 adult bullheads and volunteers collected approximately 750,000 to 1 million bullhead minnows last summer. Due to these efforts, when the DNR did there 2021 Fall Survey, there was an average of 34.1 age-0 walleye per mile. In comparison, 2019 and 2020 only averaged 3 age-0 walleye per mile. 

For more information, and to participate in this effort go to the Fishing section under the Lake Info menu.

Eurasian Water Milfoil (EWM) Treatment

For a number of years, the Lake Association, with financial grant assistance from the WDNR, has performed annual spot treatment of targeted EWM areas of the lake. These areas have typically focused on public access areas such as boat launches and swimming areas where safety is of greatest concern. As of 2018, the Wisconsin DNR has suspended use of chemical treatment for control of EWM in northern Wisconsin lakes. With the completion of our lake management plan, the association's newly formed Invasive Species and Aquatic Plants committee will begin working with the DNR and other involved parties to develop our ongoing treatment strategy.
