Krakow Memorial Fishing Area Now Open

Last week marked the end of a project spanning over two years to rebuild the dredge bank road and Krakow Memorial Fishing Area in Montello.

The fence has been removed and the public is once again welcome to enjoy the area for fishing, biking, walking and relaxing.

The overall project began in the fall of 2012 with the drawing down of Buffalo Lake.  Construction then began on June 10th of 2013.  The road was rebuilt, boat launch improved and new fishing piers added. New gates were added and the spillway was reconstructed. The spillway now has a fish passage on the south end that was not there before.

The city hopes to hold a rededication of the area next year.
