A study has been done on 50 lakes across Minnesota looking for chemicals that find their way into the lakes.  The most common chemical was DEET (used in bug spray).  Followed by a plastics chemical, and then surprisingly cocaine showed up.  Sometimes the cocaine was even found in remote lakes not near a sewer run off.

City of Duluth Provides Road Sand Collection Sites to Help Protect the Trout Habitat

Now that the snow has melted we are dealing with garbage and dirt that's been hidden for the past few months.  Garbage is easy throw it in the trash, the dirt/sand is another story.  It would be so easy to just sweep it into the street, like we sweep the dirt in the kitchen under the rug (wait, did I just admit that?).  But, sweeping it into the streets can cause problems, so  the City of Duluth has the answer to that problem with Sand Collection Sites.

Months ago me and some friends made plans to fish the Wisconsin fishing opener.   We kept the date open, got babysitters lined up, bought our licenses and eagerly waited to get back on the water.  However, it was apparent last week that we were going to have to change plans with the bizarre late spring we've had.
