Fish Committee News

Fish stocking took place on November 1, 2022. Largemouth bass, yellow perch and black crappie were added to the lake. Our thanks go out to local businesses who helped to make this happen. Read a summary and see photos from the fish stocking day.  

A DNR walleye study is tracking where walleyes are being found along the upper Fox River. Reminder: Tagged fish are marked with an orange loop tag near the dorsal fin that reads, RESEARCH REWARD. If you catch one, you could receive a $100 reward. Read the details here.

Petititon to increase lake level

Update: DNR requests additional information  

Last year, Buffalo Lake District petitioned the DNR to make changes to the lake level process currently in place. In March 2022, we received a response to our petition requesting additional information. You can find the DNR response here > 

FREE nutrient-rich compost 

We're looking for additional weed dropoff sites

Attention: farmers, gardeners and land owners! The harvesting committee on Buffalo Lake is looking for additional sites to drop off weeds during the summer months. The weeds decompose in less than one year and become nutrient rich compost. Last year, we had over 1,400 truck loads of lake weeds to distribute. Due to transportation costs and time restrictions, our preference would be for locations within a 10-mile radius of Buffalo Lake. The compost and delivery are free!
