Lake level information

Questions about the lake level always start to come in around this time of year, as district members eagerly look forward to spring fishing and getting the boat in the water. Based on agreements currently in place, lake levels are maintained by the DNR. In 2020, we started the legal process to possibly modify the existing levels regulated by the dam in Montello.

2nd Annual Venetian Night on Buffalo Lake

Back by popular demand! The inaugural boat parade on Buffalo Lake was
a huge success and feedback from lake district members was overwhelmingly
in favor of doing it again. If you'd like to be on the planning committee, contact Ro Klecz at In the meantime, check out the
Photo Gallery from 2020 and start thinking about your decorations! Can you top the Ariel, Bigfoot and Aquaman creations from 2020?

This event is organized by volunteers and is not sponsored by the Buffalo Lake district board.


What do you want to know about our harvesting operations?

We get a lot of questions about our harvesting of lake weeds. Rightly so, as it is the largest expense for our lake district and it affects all of our district members. We compiled an FAQ with the most common questions we receive, so members have a good baseline of information for how the operation works - before, during and after the official cutting season. Take a look at the FAQ, and if you have other questions, let us know.
