Optional CSLAP Observations

It's helpful to get more information about lakes, and it's most helpful if that information is collected in a standard way.  Additional data about your lakes can include:

Ice on - ice off dates

Is the duration of open water increasing?  Does the amount and duration of ice predict lake conditons?

Boat Counts & Recreational Survey

One way of getting at boat use is to simply count the number of boats along the shores. Another option is to look at a period of typical use and see how many boats, and what kinds of boats, are out on the water.  This includes what they are doing, for example, motoring, anchored, towing a skier, fishing. 

Anglers Survey

So anglers can provide their views on the fishing.

Zebra Mussel Monitoring

Check for the presence of zebra mussels in your lake.
