The Club has dumped another 1,000 rainbow trout in Balsam Lake. The public is welcomed to fish the lake and the Club has two nice docks you are able to enter a boat.

Although, most of the fish are 7 inches to 13 inches long some club members report seeing one that is around 50 inches long. Now that's a big rainbow and this is not just a fish story.

The Club is busy making a lot of improvements at the Sports Center. Some of the improvements include: new cooler at the softball concession stand; cement slabs under the steel bleachers and the ticket booth; new windows in the kitchen pavilion; improvements to the coolers; a structure over the compressors; a new bar. A lot of great improvements are being made to make this one of the best small town facilities around. If you would like to rent the pavilion for any special occasion you can contact member Robert Deach.

The Club is getting ready for the 24th Annual Trout Fest to be held on September 2, 3 & 4. It looks like it will be another great event. $100 cash raffle tickets are now available. You can contact any member if you would like one. Get yours today!

The Kid's Fishing Expo held on May 20th was another huge success! Nearly 100 fishing poles were given to 4th grade kids from four local schools. The Club held many presentations on the annual field day. Good job guys!

The Club is busy mowing the local Nature Trail. Come out and enjoy a walk through our well-groomed trail.

The Club would like to thank Denny Welling for the new duck houses that have been installed around Balsam Lake. Dean Johnson & Bimbo Gifford installed the houses and they managed to keep their boat afloat this year while they were doing the job.
