Fall Fish Crib Build

The Lake District Fisheries Committee will again be installing fish cribs. This year’s build and placement date is Saturday, Sept. 24th.

We are installing DNR approved half-log structure that is easy to build and very effective in providing habitat for young fish. These cribs will be placed in about 5 feet of water.

Since the cribs will be placed close to shore, we need riparian owner’s consent.

We are looking for 16 new locations this year.

If you are interested in hosting a crib, and have an area away from docks and swimming areas, please contact Brent Wells at [email protected].

Please note: the crib locations will not be made public, only the DNR will have the location. The cribs are for the fish, not fishermen!


Thank you!
