FISHING EVENT PLANNED
Looking forward to warmer weather? We'd like to announce our plans to organize a fishing contest on Eagle Lake this year. Although many details are yet to be finalized, we know that the event will be held on Saturday, June 1st, to coincide with the DNR free fishing weekend. Mark the date on your calendars, and join your neighbors and fellow members at Eagle Lake Park for some family fun. Details for this and other ELIA activities will soon appear in the Events section of our website.
DON'T BE THIS GUY
01/20/2019 -- The recent snow is great for snowmobiles but adds some risk when venturing onto Eagle Lake to fish. Many areas which had been measured at 4-5 inches are now covered, making it difficult to avoid thin areas which could be just a few yards away. Check ice thickness several times as you venture further onto the lake. Good fishing has been reported by ice fisherman this year, but your safety is more important. Click here

PHOTO CONTEST WINNERS
The talent of many local photographers was on display at the annual meeting in this year's Eagle Lake Photo Contest. Entries were impartially judged and winners were chosen in three categories, with a fourth award selected by vote of meeting attendees. The image of the sunset paddle boarder, taken by Kim Traxinger, won the People's Choice award. To view all of the winning entries, please visit our Photo page
and see if you agree with our photo judge.
WATERSHED TASK FORCE
You might not even be aware of the Oakcrest Creek inlet, where it is located, or how it contributes to the health of Eagle Lake. But thanks to the efforts of the Watershed Task Force, this will change this spring. Legacy phosphorus, dead and diseased trees, and invasive species are among the issues to be addressed in efforts to restore the inlet to a more natural state. We might soon have an IESF on Eagle Lake! Click here
