Reports and Documents
In 2019, the High-Fishtrap-Rush Lakes Association (HFRLA) undertook a major effort to monitor native aquatic plants and aquatic invasive species (AIS) in the three lakes. White Water Associates aquatic biologist Angie Stine worked with HFRLA volunteers to conduct the field work. Kent Premo, Dean Premo, and Angie Stine managed and analyzed the resulting data sets. In one instance (Fishtrap Lake AIS monitoring), the field work was conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR).
