The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will be conducting a creel survey on Otter Tail Lake from Saturday through Oct. 15.
Anglers should be aware that a DNR creel clerk will likely approach them on Otter Tail Lake this summer. Anglers will be asked to participate in the survey by answering questions and allowing the creel clerk to measure some of the fish they caught. The process should take a few minutes.
The DNR conducts creel surveys every 10-12 years on Otter Tail Lake to gather information about overall angling pressure and harvest, and release and catch rates of various species. The information will help with future management of the lake, the DNR said.
