Two local outdoors experts are trying to raise money to restore the fish in the drained Lake Delton. Torrential rains in June broke Lake Delton's dam, causing it to empty. There was no money in local budgets to restock the fishery, so Dan Small and Ben Hobbins are collaborating to draw attention to the problem and try to attract private donations. Department of Natural Resources fishing expert Tim Larson says the cost of restocking the lake could be as much as $200,000. And that's on top of another $100,000 to get rid of vegetation that has grown on the bottom since the drainage. Small says Gander Mountain and other names associated with outdoor recreation will place a link on their Web sites, which will send consumers to www.restorelakedeltonfisheries.com to make donations.
