The annual watercraft inspection program has ended for 2023. The program operates from late spring, through the summer and into the middle of the fall.

AIS and the Ice-covered (Closed Water) Season

In the ice-covered season, aquatic invasive species (AIS) can spread by humans moving water-related equipment (e.g., fishing gear, bait buckets, augers, scoops) from one water body to another.
