It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane!

     It really could be a plane if your planning to be around Winchell Lake in the Boundary Waters next week. Motor boats and airplanes aren’t my favorite things to see while paddling the BWCA and if they aren’t yours either then plan to paddle elsewhere.

During the week of September 9-15, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will be using motor boats and an airplane while completing fish stocking surveys on Winchell Lake.  During this time period you may observe the DNR in a motor boat or a low flying aircraft.  If you have any questions about this practice, please contact the US Forest Service, Tofte Ranger District (218) 663-8060.
