PALMYRA, Wis. -- The fishing season on Lower Spring Lake in Palmyra is closed effective Sept. 9, 2019 and will remain closed until further notice. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources closed the season pursuant to s. NR 20.33 (1), Wis. Admin. Code because a scheduled drawdown of water levels in order to control of invasive Eurasian watermilfoil.

The drawdown may concentrate fish in Lower Spring Lake, potentially having a harmful impact on fish populations due to reduced river and flowage habitat. Closing the season will conserve these game fish populations until water levels are restored to maintain continued opportunities for good fishing on Lower Spring Lake, said Travis Motl, DNR fisheries biologist.
