Dear Ray:

Nick passed along your request to determine what proportion of Minnesota's 14,000 odd lakes of 10 acres or more in size are waterfowl lakes.

Let me say that it is my unbiased judgement that they are all waterfowl lakes, some of which have an incidental fishery value. There are others who would argue the point and claim 3,000 fish lakes, 2,000 intermediate fish-waterfowl lakes, and that the remaining 9,000 lakes have various waterfowl value(in the Northeast little value for either).

We will not have a complete detailed inventory for some time.

Sincerely Yours,

Robert L. Jessen
