Our Mission

HFRLA’s mission is to preserve and protect the High-Fishtrap-Rush Lakes and surroundings which include the headwaters of the Manitowish River for today and future generations.” The Association will work to enhance the water quality, biological integrity, fishery, public recreation, boating safety, and aesthetic values of the HFR area.
