You’ve been meaning to do it for a long time… now is the time to go through your old family photo albums for your association. LSA is looking for old photos of Lake Sullivan for a couple of reasons:
1. We hope to find early historical photos of our lake prior to the DNR Platte River dam, which was built in the 1930’s, to help demonstrate the need to have the Platte River dam rebuilt.
2. We also want to build up our archive of historical photos of the lake and the families that have enjoyed it and share them on our new website.
If you have a scanner you can scan your photos and email them to LSA. If you don’t have a scanner, just let us know using the same link and we’ll arrange to pick them up, scan them, and return them to you.
A mail-in survey of angler attitudes was conducted during the winter of 2012-2013 in the vicinity of Little Falls, in central Minnesota. The purpose of this project was to assess angler attitudes pertaining to potential management options for bluegill in the Little Falls work area. Bluegill are almost certainly the most pursued fish in the Little Falls work area. More than twice as many sunfish are harvested in Minnesota each year (15.6 million) than the second most frequently angled fish, the black crappie (7.0 million). Despite the popularity of sunfish to anglers only two lakes in the work area are managed for sunfish via specialized fishing regulations. Since 1999 DNR Fisheries staff have been conducting spring trap net assessments targeting panfish on many area lakes to more adequately assess sunfish populations and determine if suitable growth, recruitment and mortality characteristics exist to manage for quality within these populations.
More than 80 residents of the Lake Sullivan community responded to the 2015 LSA member survey. The survey asked residents opinions about a variety of subjects including donations, SLID, charitable gambling, aquatic invasive species, trash day and more.
