Love of the Lakes

Whether you live on a lake or a river, visit a body of water frequently or infrequently, or simply love pristine waters, you’ll want to take a look at our 13th annual Love of the Lakes

In this issue, readers will find stories about recreation on our lakes and rivers, as well as stories about steps we all must take to ensure the quality of our area waters.

Enjoy stories about recreation on the water, including the surge in wakesurfing and high school fishing teams. Be sure to also read up on what all of us need to do to keep our lakes healthy. Learn (or re-learn) what endangers a lake’s health - such as overly manicured shorelines and aquatic invasive species - and what we can do to preserve water quality. You don’t have to live on a lake to take

Be sure to share Love of the Lakes with friends and family. If you have any comments or suggestions, contact Nancy Vogt at or 218-855-5877.
