“Looks pretty good,” he said.
The $30,000 project is part of the DNR’s Fishing in the Neighborhood program.
The pier was expected to be finished by Wednesday, Sept. 11.
Meanwhile, the DNR is also working at Colby Lake to reduce phosphorus, which creates algae.
Over the past two years the DNR has stocked the lake with about 4,000 catfish, which should help reduce the population of bullhead, a fish that stirs up sediment on the lake bottom, Levitt said.
The local watershed district has also installed rain gardens at several homes near the lake in an attempt to reduce phosphorus runoff.
Panfish, such as bluegill, will be stocked next spring, Levitt said.
