Pursuant to the public meeting noticed by the DNR (https://dnr.wi.gov/news/releases/article/?id=4992) notices will be posted at both Trippe and Cravath Lakes of the following:
NOTICE OF FISHING SEASON CLOSURE ON TRIPPE AND CRAVATH LAKES, WALWORTH COUNTY
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the fishing season on Trippe and Cravath Lakes is closed effective December 18th, 2019 and will remain closed until further notice. This season closure is established pursuant to s. NR20.33(1) Wis. Admin. Code because a scheduled drawdown of water levels in order to control invasive Eurasian watermilfoil may concentrate fish, make them more vulnerable to angler harvest and may deplete the game fish supply. Closure of the season will conserve game fish populations until water levels are restored to allow future opportunities for good fishing on Trippe and Cravath Lakes in Walworth County.
If you have questions, please contact:
Laura Stremick-Thompson, Fisheries Supervisor
