Minnesota Fish Tales
Statewide Fishing Report

Well it was a good week on Leech Lake.  The fish are definitely on the move and somedays they are snapping and others spread out and negative.  With the winds we have been having of late the fish are congregating on the Main Lake Points and shoreline breaks.  4-8ft of water has been the best when fishing wind blown structures.  Ottertail, Little and Big Hardwoods, Five Mile, Pine Point, Little Stoney, and any wind blown shoreline that has had the wind blowing into it for a couple days have been good.

CO Weekly Report

10-12-15- CO Ben Huener (Roseau) reports lots of successful duck hunters in the Roseau River and Thief Lake Wildlife Management Areas. Ringnecks and redheads are still the most populous bird on Thief Lake while hunters on the Roseau River are shooting more teal and mallards.  A TIP complaint of two swans being shot at Roseau River WMA was investigated. Charges are pending for two hunters who killed the swans, claiming they thought the birds were snow geese. The swans, which turned out to be the larger species of trumpeter swans, weighed 22 and 24 pounds.

Minnesota Hunting Seasons

Q: What types of products come from Minnesota forests?

A: Paper, lumber and engineered wood panel products are the most familiar. Today’s lumber mills produce many different sizes and grades of lumber – along with paneling, millwork, pallets, beams, squares, cants, rough timber and more. Minnesota’s pulp and paper industry consists of four mills, each manufacturing different types of paper used in copy machines, magazines and high-quality printing. Engineered wood panel products include oriented strand board, siding and sheathing used primarily in housing construction.

Products not so well known include the production of larch arabinogalactan, an ingredient used in food, dietary supplements and personal care products. The emerging bio-chemical industry produces tree-based solvents, which are petroleum substitutes useful in making bio-based plastics and home cleaning products.

Commercial timber and paper processing also generate wood waste (bark, sawdust and forest residuals), which can then be used as a fuel source to produce heat, steam and power. One of Minnesota’s paper mills also produces a special cellulose pulp used to manufacture clothing.

Seasonal decorations represent another type of forest product that shouldn’t be overlooked. Several conifer species are harvested each year as Christmas trees, and their boughs are gathered to make wreaths. Many decorative holiday planters and crafts are produced from Minnesota tree parts like spruce tips and white birch branches.

The list of products from our forests includes much more when we consider the wildlife, recreation, fresh water and other benefits the forest ecology provides.
