Carp in Lake Gervais

At this evening's council workshop, we had a presentation from the Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District. Many things about the watershed were discussed, including a survey of carp in local lakes that is part of a study of their impact on phosphorus suspended in our lakes (both in churning it up from the bottom of shallow lakes, and in excreting it themselves).

On the RWMWD's website, I found a link to a slideshow from the carp-counting operation in Lake Gervais. Check it out. Besides an awful lot of carp, you'll see a really enormous muskie that they pulled out of the chilly waters — and put right back in — this past January.
