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.
So anglers can provide their views on the fishing.
Zebra Mussel Monitoring
Check for the presence of zebra mussels in your lake.
