Do You Know What Clean, Remove, Drain and Never Move Stands For? You Should!

As we are quickly approaching the warm summer months, more and more eager anglers and boaters are prepping to get out on the Wisconsin’s beautiful lakes and rivers.

Remember: Clean, Remove, Drain, Never Move!
• CLEAN your boat, trailer & gear
• REMOVE all attached aquatic plants and animals.
• DRAIN all water from boats, vehicles, and equipment, including livewells and buckets containing fish.
• NEVER MOVE plants or live fish away from a waterbody.
