great fish habitat program.
Fish Stocking on Nelson L. will be done Oct. 5th at Gerlach’s Landing, Patrow’s Landing, and
Bog Bay. This Fall we will be receiving both extended growth walleyes and 600 lbs of fathead
minnows for feed. All 3 stocking areas are protected, shallow areas. Walleyes for NW
Wisconsin will be providing monies to help pay for this stocking effort, and John Welter will see if
the Nelson L. Resort Association will be able to help too.
There was also a discussion on the raffle ticket sales and prizes. We are considering 1 large
item and a couple smaller gifts. Examples include: kayak, paddleboard, rifle, gift baskets, gift
certificates. Think about these and other options for next year’s raffle ticket sales.
The NLA Fall Newsletter will be going out in November. The marker buoys on the lake will be
picked up on Wed. Oct. 11th.
