THE ICE IS FABULOUS!
January 15, 2019
We need pucks
for the rink.
There is over 12" of ice in spots. Watch for the muscrat air holes as the ice is thinner around them.
Skating trails and the Rink at Davis' are what they are. The rink is in good condition the banks don't keep much in so watch it when shooting towards shore. There are lots of pucks hiding in the cattails.
This is a great time to shave cattails off and remove the stalks. Ideal conditions. You can move the stalks to the shoreline and they will decompose right there or go nutrient negative and get them hauled away.
We have to get the accumulating biomass out of the lake which is killing off the native bottom vegetation and reducing water quality. Between the top of the water and the bottom - 85% of that muck is decomposed organic matter.
Thus, the lake needs our help to keep the lake a lake and to seek new methods to remove the unnatural build up of organic plant matter so the bottom can be restored.

Let's Talk Cattails
Muscrat Populations are up. They help control the cattails.
The image of Shavers Lake in the 1905 map below doesn't look at all like it is today. That's how much we have changed the shape and state of the lake. We need to be a great steward to protect this watershed from disappearing completely, which has almost happened twice in the past 30 years.
