Project Overview
The Rainy Lake Sportfishing Club (Club) has partnered with the Koochiching Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) to address the increase in number of log jams along the Rat Root River as well as the decline of the walleye spawning run. The Club was organized to assist in the enhancement of the fisheries resources on Rainy Lake, Rainy River and their tributaries and has invested considerable time and treasure in the last several years to identify problems that have led to the decline of the Rat Root River system with regard to fish habitat. Primary activities include log jam removal to improve access, walleye spawning bed protection, and water quality improvement in an ongoing effort to improve fish habitat in these waters.
