ABSTRACT. One of the City of Eagan’s Water Resources program goals is for 12 of the City’s lakes to support public fishing opportunities, giving most residents a place to fish about a mile from home.  The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has routinely conducted fish assessments on only about five of these lakes, therefore the City has developed the capacity to assess each of the remaining seven lakes once every five years. In the resulting collaboration, the City shares findings, analysis, and management decisions with DNR, benefitting from their expertise and sharing resources when possible.  The partnership promotes communication and support between the two government entities in other lake management areas as well, such as plant management and winter lake aeration.  This presentation will give details about Eagan’s fisheries population sampling methods, management history, and program goals.
