The Prior Lake Spring Lake Watershed district’s engineering team reported at the recent Watershed Workshop that the alum treatment for Upper Prior Lake is a waste of money until we get the carp population under control. WSB is their selected contractor and they are a very credible group. They have a number of carp in all 3 lakes ‘tagged’ with radio transmitters. WSB has done a couple ‘electro fishing’ surveys of the lake, and WSB will also ‘seed’ about 300 fish this fall and put detection equipment in the creek between Spring Lake/Prior Lake and at the inlet to Spring Lake attempting to get migration patterns established. They also have put a carp barrier in the outlet from Artic Lake which is believed to be a spawning area.
4th of July Boat Parade
The Annual 4TH of July Boat Parade will be conducted again this year. Boats will assemble on the upper lake in front of Charlies on Prior site at 1 PM. All boats must pre-register at the marina. Judging will be from a Prior Lake Association pontoon donated by the Knotty Oar Marina.
