Lake Redstone Protection District Survey 2022
In 2017 the Lake Redstone Protection District board conducted a survey of district residents to seek their opinions regarding issues facing the district. The results guided the activities of the board over the next five years. We need your help again! This time the survey results will help the district formulate an updated aquatic plant management plan and help with prioritization during the implementation of the new comprehensive lake management plan.
Take the survey any time through the end of June
Lake Redstone DNR Fish Survey Update - May 16
The DNR will have an electrofishing boat on Lake Redstone tonight, May 16, as well as next Monday night, May 23. Tonight they will have one sampling station that begins in Chickadee Bay and ends in Mourning Dove Bay. The second station tonight starts on the east side of the lake down near the narrows and continues north along the main lake shoreline, and includes Cardinal Bay.
On May 23, one station includes a good chunk of the northeast arm of the lake, and the other station includes a good chunk of the northwest arm of the lake. As usual we will be starting at dark. The boat will have bright lights on the front and we will be moving at a speed of around 1.8-2.0 mph.
Lake Redstone DNR Fish Survey
The 2022 Wisconsin DNR Comprehensive Fishery Survey is the first such survey of Lake Redstone since 2010-11. It will include the following activities:
Early-mid April: Spring netting period 1, target species is walleye. Begins immediately after ice out and continues until sufficient numbers of walleyes have been marked with a fin clip. When enough fish have been marked, the nets will be pulled out. This netting survey may take 2-3 weeks depending on how quick the lake warms up to trigger the walleye spawn.
Mid-late April: Spring Electrofishing survey 1, occurs immediately after nets are pulled out. Two DNR electrofishing boats will survey the entire shoreline of the lake at night. The goal is to collect walleyes, but other gamefish will be sampled as well. Fish are checked for the presence of a fin clip, and based on the numbers of clipped and non-clipped fish found in this survey, the DNR calculates an estimate of the number of adult walleyes in Lake Redstone.
Mid-Late April: Spring netting survey 2, re-deploy nets to continue sampling muskies, which are being marked with a small internal tag. Muskies are being marked for the purpose of a population estimate. Netting will continue until enough muskies have been marked. This survey will likely be shorter than the first netting period, depending on how many muskies were marked during the first period.
Mid-late May: Spring Electrofishing period 2, one DNR electrofishing boat will be on the lake for 1 or 2 nights to sample bass and panfish. Selected stations will be sampled, not the entire shoreline.
