DNR undertakes study to find out migration patterns on Cass Lake chain
CASS LAKE -- The travels of the walleyes throughout the Cass Lake chain of lakes will be the root of a study conducted during the next few years by the Bemidji Area Department of Natural Resources Fisheries officials. The project will begin this spring with the stocking of walleye fry marked with tetracycline into Lake Andrusia.
The Cass Lake chain includes Andrusia, Big Wolf, Big Rice and Kitchi and walleyes are known to migrate among those lakes. Just how common the migration is and how far the fish travel are among the questions the DNR Fisheries staff will try to answer during the next few years when the marked walleye are stocked and their travels are monitored.
