DNR Halts Lake Trout Stocking in Cook County

Lake trout in Cook County are on their own when it comes to sustaining their populations on lakes in or near the Boundary Waters and Gunflint Trail corridor.

A recent decision by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to discontinue – at least temporarily – lake trout stocking is both a success story and an indication into how hard it can be to reintroduce fish species into area lakes once they vanish.

Matt Weberg, the interim Grand Marais area fisheries supervisor in Grand Marais, shares more on this topic in today’s episode.

Kalli and Joe also talk about recent mountain lion sightings near the Cascade River and Lake Superior.
