Your lakes need your help!!

In Ontario we are seeing a significant rise in some Invasive Water Species invading many lakes. In order to stop the spread of these invaders it is vital to clean your boats, trailers, canoes, kayaks, paddle boats after leaving any waterway. In addition to this, your live wells and fishing equipment. The spread of Zebra mussels, Starry Stonewort and Water Soldier are on the move so please be vigilant and clean your watercraft. Shawano members are proud members of FOCA and we all support the CLEAN -DRAIN- DRY program
