Wee-Ma-Tuk News

Fish News: A New Approach

By Morgan Maddox

Wee-Ma-Tuk Landowner’s Association, with the help of landowner 
Ryan Maddox, has teamed up with Nate Herman of Herman Brothers 
Lake and Land Management this spring to survey, stock, and manage 
the lakes of Wee-Ma-Tuk.  Nate is extremely excited to partner with us 
on the venture to make our lakes as healthy and prosperous as ever.  
Herman Brothers is a very well-known outfitter who has been 
developing properties for generations.  They specialize in every 
phase of lake management, but most importantly in the longevity of 
the lakes.  

Nate and Ryan began their venture in late April/early May by surveying 
4 lakes of Wee-Ma-Tuk.  The lakes were chosen based on population, 
which are Traer, Marie, Wood, and the Big Lake.  Once surveyed, Nate 
laid a plan for each lake detailing what fish need to stay, what fish 
need to go, and what fish we will need to add to better emphasize the 
environment of each lake.  Four lakes were selected this year due to 
budget estimates, but based on Nate’s determinations and our budget 
there could be more lakes surveyed/stocked in the 2017 year.  We 
plan to continue our relationship with the Herman Brothers for many 
years to come in order to come to know all lakes of Wee-Ma-Tuk and 
to maintain their conditions.  And please remember, the dues we as 
Landowners pay help to maintain and improve our properties by 
giving us the opportunity to form relationships such as this!  
Nate is more than happy to answer any questions you may have 
regarding your lake’s health, fish stock, or any other general lake 
management questions.  He urges landowners to make smart 
decisions regarding their waters and to know that the smallest detour 
from a plan could set the environment in the wrong direction.  If you 
would like to contact Nate directly, please feel free to do so by 
emailing him at .  You can also review 
the Herman Brothers and their services by visiting their website at,  Please keep an eye on our Wee-
Ma-Tuk Facebook page and for updated 
information from each lake survey and for the recommendations that 
Nate Herman sets forth.  His direction will make the lakes of Wee-Ma-
Tuk thrive, and we couldn’t be happier to have him!
