Lake Conservation Webinar Series: Seasonal Habitat, Temperature, and Depth of Adult and Juvenile Ogaa in Mille Lacs Lake
In 2018, the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe fisheries department deployed 61 acoustic receivers in Mille Lacs Lake to track tagged adult and juvenile walleye. In recent years, the ogaa stock has declined, which we hypothesized is due to less cool water for walleye to seek refuge over the summer. In this experiment, we analyzed depth and temperature data from both life stages of walleye. We found significant overlap in location, temperature, and depth during the month of January. We also identified areas of key walleye importance on Mille Lacs Lake.

Carl Klimah
Fisheries Manager @Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe
I have been a tribal fisheries biologist with the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe for 5 years, located in Central Minnesota. Since arriving, we have built a fish hatchery which has produced over 6 million walleyes and have undertaken multi-year and species acoustic telemetry studies. I received my Masters Degree from Auburn University in fisheries management and my Bachelors Degree in the same subject from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. I am still enrolled in school part-time and am learning Ojibwemowin (Ojibwe Language).
