Lac LaBelle Musky Telemetry Study Update

On April 26, 2022 Ben Huessner of the Wisconsin DNR was able to oversee a program regarding muskellunge migration within the Oconomowoc River system.

  • 12 muskies were implanted with transmitters. 
  • 6 muskies were released below the Okauchee Dam and into Oconomowoc lake. 
  • 6 muskies were released above the Dam and into Okauchee Lake.

The goal of the program is to see how muskies move throughout the entire system. This is a five year project and we look forward to studying the data. As a byproduct of this program, the Lac Labelle management district is going to work on putting in a physical barrier that will keep the fish in the lake and not allow them easy access to the outflowing river. As we receive updates on this program, we will share them with everyone. Many thanks need to go out to Ben Huessner and the Wisconsin DNR for undergoing this study which will impact our musky fishing waters.

Other BIG Annoucements!

The DNR will be running a warm water study on muskies.  They are planning on transferring 5, 30-35 inch fish, from  Pewaukee Lake to a facility to be studied regarding catch and release mortality rates.  This may have future management implications for waters that lack thermal refuge or reach high surface temperatures.
