DNR Activating Winter Aeration Systems
Posted: 12/06/2013
Winter aeration systems have been started at the following lakes:
  • Five Island Lake (Palo Alto County)
  • Ingham Lake (Emmet County)
  • Center Lake (Dickinson County)
  • Silver Lake (Dickinson County)
  • Clear Lake (Cerro Gordo County)
  • Crystal Lake (Hancock County)
  • Little Wall Lake (Hamilton County)

Use extreme caution on lakes with aeration systems. These systems create open water to reduce the likelihood of a fish kill during harsh winter conditions it but also creates an area of thin ice surrounding the aerator that should be avoided.
