Tributary Restoration

Water quality and fish habitat have been seriously degraded in the tributaries which flow in Lake St. Francis.  Historical and ongoing land use practices have contributed to high sedimentation, habitat loss due to channelization and excessive nutrient and bacteria levels.  These tributaries are utilized by the various fish species of Lake St. Francis as nursery and spawning areas.  Species such as walleye, northern pike, yellow perch, muskellunge, small mouth bass, large mouth bass and a variety of forage fish have been negatively impacted.

Several programs are underway to address these issues in the tributaries:
