There will not be a Drawdown on Puckaway this year.
The annual meeting was Saturday June 2. The annual budget
for 2019 was approved. A new commissioner was elected, Keith
Barnes for a three year term. Kurt McCulloch is the new chairman.
There was a good turnout for the meeting, estimated at 140 members.
The new Lake Puckaway Comprehensive Management Plan is
now on this web site under Photos.
May 8 Randy and Rich moved the Tern Rafts out for the summer
Good job guys.
Ice went out on Puckaway on April 3
Water levels are way up from the snow and now heavy rains
The Hatchery is now completed for the year. Guys are starting
to clean up and put things away for next year.
The drawdown is planned this summer starting in June
If any shoreline property owner has interest in doing something
with their shoreline such as riprapping or dredging this would be
the year to apply for a permit for this summer. Water will be lower
during the drawdown. If interested you can contact
