The mission of the Fish Trap Lake Property Owners Association is to preserve our wildlife and water quality and promote safe recreation for the Fish Trap Lake Community. Established in 1973, we have a proud heritage of working with the community and local government to make Fish Trap Lake safe and fun for recreation while preserving the lake’s environmental quality.
Get Involved – Help our Lake
We have been blessed with a great neighbor, Jim Fogelberg, who has monitored and tested the quality of our lake for 13 years. Jim plans to retire from this important role this spring with his final act of recording our ice-out date.
Since Jim has decided it’s time to “pass the Secchi” we are looking for someone who would be willing to take over our lake water clarity and quality monitoring. The requirements are fairly simple. You need to be able to:
– Report lake ice out and ice in dates
– Have access to a fishing boat or similar low riding watercraft
– Be able to take a series of Secchi disc water clarity readings and water quality samples from May to September
Jim has indicated he would be able to work with you and show you how and what to do. There is no cost to you other than your time and effort. Secchi information and water samples are forwarded to RMB labs and used in their reporting. Water clarity/quality monitoring is very important to us to keep track of what our lake is doing, especially now, as we see what impact the Zebra Mussels will have on our lake over the upcoming years.
If you are interested please go to our website and in the drop down under “About Us” go to the Contact Us to send us an email or drop us a note at P.O. Box 85, Cushing, MN 56443.
We want to thank Jim on behalf of the entire Board for his phenomenal service to our lake. Cheers, Jim!
