New Michigan DNR director enjoys hunting, fishing

New Michigan DNR Director Scott Bowen said he grew up fishing for walleyes and still enjoys hunting and fishing, especially chasing steelhead on the Muskegon and Manistee rivers.

Bowen was appointed to head the DNR earlier this month by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
“I grew up fishing for walleye on Lake Gogebic with my maternal grandfather, who was from Mass City,” Bowen said in an email to MON. “I am an enthusiastic angler – I love fishing for steelhead in particular – and I have purchased a hunting or fishing license or both most years of my adult life.“

Eurasian watermilfoil treated in Iowa’s West Okoboji canals

The battle continues in the fight against Eurasian watermilfoil on the canals of West Lake Okoboji in Iowa.
According to Mike Hawkins, fisheries biologist, treatment of the infected areas took place on Sept. 20 using the fast-acting herbicide called ProcellaCOR. This was the result of the decision made by the Iowa DNR and a local task force of community stakeholders on Aug. 8 to treat the impacted area of 19 acres. Jason Euchner, DNR Aquatic Vegetation Biologist, handled the treatment.

More than 2,500 acres of forest, lakes and ponds to be added to Minnesota’s Paul Bunyan State Forest

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources announced Thursday that it received a 2,529-acre land donation from Trust for Public Land. The donated land, roughly four-square miles of rolling hills of forests, lakes, ponds and wetlands near Park Rapids, will be managed by the Minnesota DNR as part of Paul Bunyan State Forest. The parcel currently includes a portion of the Scout Trail, a pre-existing Grant-in-Aid snowmobile trail, and will eventually offer many other recreation opportunities.

Mississippi River boat ramp extensions in Guttenberg, Iowa, await permit approval

Pending approval of a permit by the Army Corps of Engineers, a cooperative project between the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and city of Guttenberg will allow boaters easier access to the Mississippi River.
The project will provide for five-foot-by-15-foot concrete extensions on three ramps at the city landing, the only access for Pool 11 located in the city limits, easing fears of boaters whose trailers have fallen off the existing ramps, especially during periods of low water.
“Right now, there is a significant drop-off for trailers,” said Jamie Blume, assistant city manager.
