I took my 3yo daughter to Nimi Saturday so she could practice winging her texas rigged worm against the back of dad's head. As I pulled into the parking lot a guy working on his boat trailer heaved his old trailer bunks and other trash into the woods at the Main St launch ramp. I thought where's a cop when you need one. Got the boat ready and put her life jacket on and in comes a park ranger! He gave Lily a junior ranger badge for having her preserver on and then drives over to the ramp and parks. He talks to some guys loading their boat and then he goes to talk to the guy working on his trailer. I heard him asking about the old bunks and other stuff in the woods behind him and the guy says he was "just storing them there till he left!!!" Yea right. Just storing your trash that you just heaved 30' back in the woods. The ranger told him he'd appreciate it if he stored his trash in the back of his truck and stood there while the guy walked back into the weeds and retrieved his trash. The guy wasn't too happy and left as soon as the ranger left. I launched and there was two other trash bags and an old paint can some worthless $*@ tossed into the parking lot by the ramp. It was good to see the ranger out there, paying attention and keeping trash from trashing our state lakes. Didn't catch anything. Marked alot of fish in the 12-15 fow off the Main St ramp as we went out to where the weedbed used to be in the middle of the lake. That lake has really changed! I haven't been to Nimi much the last few years as I spend most of my time at West Branch. The weeds are there but different. Now it's mostly lilypads and the long filament-like algae stuff. The water looked like West Branch instead of the super clear Nimi that I remember. 12' holes are now 2' holes. Going to start spending more time there as it's only 10 miles away instead of 40 miles away. Plus it's a decent walleye and channel lake.
