Portions of Marsh Lake islands to be closed for waterfowl hunting
MARSH LAKE -- Waterfowl hunters are being advised that portions of islands in Marsh Lake will be closed during the waterfowl season as a precaution to prevent the possible spread of Newcastle disease.
The islands are located in a nonmotorized zone of the lake, which is near Appleton in western Minnesota.
Newcastle disease had caused the die-off of hundreds of double-crested cormorants and ringbilled gulls on Marsh Lake earlier this summer.
