Many people will remember the beautiful paver patio that once was at the Nisswa Chamber building in downtown, Nisswa. The patio served as the walkway from the building to the Paul Bunyan Trail. Last summer, the old building was demolished, in preparation for a new Public Restroom/Welcome Center. The new building was completed and opened in November, 2013.
The paver bricks were saved and have been in storage. The Nisswa Chamber will be putting those pavers back into the ground, around the new building; and have some other plans for adding to the beauty of the grounds around the trail and Welcome Center.
The STEP BY STEP paver program is back by popular demand. People can purchase a paver brick and have it engraved. STEP 1: complete a form with your contact information; STEP 2: choose what you want the brick to say (up to 3 lines, 12-15 characters per line); STEP 3: pay $100 for each brick (pay by cash, check, credit card).More Info...
07/14/14 Fishing Report provided by Guide Nick Miltimore of Walleyedan's Guide Service:
The walleye bite continues in the Nisswa area. Our primary focus has been on Gull Lake but Whitefish and North Long are putting out fish as well. Most of the mid summer spots with the good weed edges are putting out fish. This week we found our active fish in 14-19 feet of water. The mornings and evenings are the better times but we have had some good mid day action depending on the weather. A jig and fathead seem to produce more fish but you have to sort through some smaller ones to get the keepers. A rig with a leech or redtail is working as well though. Make sure you find them on the graph before you start fishing them otherwise keep looking.
Bass are biting on the deep weed edge and we are using rubber worms to get them to bite. Pike have become very active on the weed edges this week and we have even had several grab hooked walleyes on their way up to the boat.
Good Luck, Nick Miltimore - Walleyedan's Guide Service 218-839-5598
