The Marine Patrol looks to our association for its continued support. In the past we have provided them with the supplies and gear they need that they request. Some of the things they now have because of your generous donations are ladders, tactical life jackets and other vital tactical gear. The Marine Patrol is very grateful for your continued support.
Marble Lake fireworks will be Sunday, July 2, 2023 at dusk. Thanks to the contributions from our association members and local businesses we had spectacular show in 2022. Our goal this year is to increase support so we can have an even bigger and better show.
The association has been stocking walleye in chain since 2017 and perch since 2020. Last spring, we put perch in Marble Lake and Mud Lake. Last fall we put walleye in Marble and Mud lakes as well. This spring we put perch in Archer Lake and Long Lake. In the fall we will put walleye in Archer and Long Lake. The Coldwater Lake association heard about our fish stocking program so they decided to put walleye in last fall. Please donate to the fish stocking program to help maintain a successful operation.
