Meadowlark Boaters

These boaters enjoyed fishing on a comfortable mid-July morning at the NRD's Meadowlark Lake. The NRD has eight public access lakes where no-wake boating, fishing and camping are allowed. No entry pass is required and there may be special posted regulations. Don't forget the sunscreen and your fishing license!
