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.
USE CAUTION ON THE ICE
03/15/2019 -- Could spring be just around the corner? Our brutal Wisconsin winter is finally nearing an end, and with the spring thaw comes the challenge of trusting the lake ice for winter activities. Residents with ATVs, snowmobiles, and ice shanties should be especially careful, as the recent warm weather has greatly reduced ice thickness in many areas. Even for ice fishing, please check the ice at several points. 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
