A creel survey was performed during the 2005 ice fishing season on Lake Quinsigamond and Asnacomet pond. The purpose was to collect data from the anglers regarding the species targeted, number of fish creeled or released, and background about the anglers. The surveys finding supported that there was a high awareness of conservation, and concern regarding pollution in Lake Quinsigamond. This information will be submitted to Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife to assist with their future fisheries management.
