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

This is the latest info we have on the Dam Project

A new engineering firm was hired and the soonest construction

could start is sometime this fall or maybe postponed until 2019

 

 Lake froze over Dec 8 2017. Almost the same as last year

 

Oct 20--This past week Randy, Rich and his wife removed the

No Wake buoys from the river for the season

Randy also reported he winterized the Hatchery. The well pump

Is off, water lines blown out, water heater removed, water filter

drained. Everything should be ready for winter.

Good job done. Thanks for volunteering to do this.
