New Channel Open between Big and Little Green

A resolution to the channel issues between Big and Little Green has been a long time coming but is finally here. For those who are not aware a new channel has been dredged to the east side of the old one. Dredging of the new channel was done via barge and back hoe the week of Aug 10th. The work was done by BVF Inc out of Cambridge and funded by the Lake Improvement District. Also a few of the GLA members contributed extra funds in their annual membership fee to be used for the channel project.

These funds have been sent to the LID with there purpose noted. The old channel will remain as a spawning area for walleye. Due to the new channel location it is hoped that the sand bottom rather than rock will help keep the channel markers in place. This has been a major problem for years. The GLA would personally like to thank Rick Ekstrand for representing the association in this endeavor and spearheading getting the project started. This project may not have happened without his involvement. Thanks Rick!. For all of us who live on the lake and visitors that have sought safe passage between Big and Little Green we know what a fantastic accomplishment this is. As a final note, in the construction of the new channel rocks have been added to each side of the marked opening for fish spawning and structural support. If you observer the channel markers you will have no issues. If you stray out side the markers you will be replacing your prop. Enjoy the new access.
