This from Roger Lade to me:
“Roger, I’m hoping you can help the club by letting lake people and others in the area that support us know about this project! We are getting a lot of support from the WI DNR because KLSC is working with them and paying for projects like this in addition to the fish stocking and other things we are doing for the improvement of our lake! I know you and Shirley have a following and have ways that you can help us let people know about our efforts! Thanks! Roger”

“Today, the Kelly Lake Sportsmen’s Club enhanced the existing walleye reef on the west shore of Kelly Lake, adjacent to Holt Park. 80 tons of cobble ranging from 2 to 8 inches in diameter was placed on the reef that was built in the 1980’s.
The original reef had areas of no rock, as well as some rock that was too large to be utilized by walleye, intermixed with rock of ideal size. During the WDNR netting survey last spring, we noticed that adult walleye were repeatedly captured in the net set on the rocks, therefore the fish are attracted to the area. We found no evidence of natural reproduction by walleye in last year’s survey.
The KLSC worked with Thompson Excavating and Mountain Stone to complete the work. There were 4 large dump trucks that hauled the rock to the site and a skid-steer was used to spread out the rock. The time on the ice was only about an hour.
Below are a few photos that I took.”
