Are you bringing a boat to the Conover area?
Your boat may have been exposed to non-native invasive life forms that are not welcome in Vilas County. Animals such as Zebra Mussels or Rusty Crayfish and plants such as Eurasian Water-Milfoil can easily be transported unintentionally from a contaminated lake to one that is not. Be a responsible boater. Properly clean and disinfect your boat, trailer, and fishing equipment before leaving home. Help keep our area free of aquatic non-native invasive life forms. Our pristine lakes are a heritage worth preserving!
