Let's Go Fishing helps stock Green Lake, plans second underwater cleanup


SPICER -- Green Lake gave up a truckload of trash to volunteer scuba divers who scoured its depths near Saulsbury Beach in Spicer last June.

In return, the lake received a truck load of new walleyes.

All 800-plus of the new fish arrived at the Joe Brown access near the Olde Mill Inn on Tuesday.

The walleye -- each one measuring eight- to 12-inches in length -- were poured into the wind-whipped waters of Green Lake by the bucket load.
