District 5 – Eveleth area
CO Darrin Kittelson (International Falls #1) reports rainy weather has kept most people close to home, with fishing on Rainy Lake and Rainy River being slow over the holiday weekend. People are reminded to leave young animals alone as in most cases they will be fine as the mother will return for them at a later time. A district meeting and training were attended in Duluth. The Wall of Shame was presented to surrounding area 11- and 12-year-old students at an Outdoor Learning Days Event.
CO Shane Zavodnik (International Falls #2) reports a busy week of working OHV, boating, and angling enforcement. Earlier in the week, he assisted in finding a lost morel picker who had gotten turned around in the woods. Luckily, the individual was able to give a fairly accurate description of where he was and was able to find his way out by listening to the emergency sirens sent off by a squad. Zavodnik also spent the day working the T.I.P. Trailer with neighboring conservation officers. Talking points were discussed to local elementary students regarding the importance of conservation and questions were also answered. Fishing success over the weekend seemed spotty with reports of small walleyes being caught. Some violations found over the week included unattended lines, expired boat registration, not enough life-saving devices on board watercraft, and failure to drain water-related equipment before transport.
