DC Outdoors/ Whitefish Dunes State Park

On Saturday, we had a two part show  on Door County Outdoors. Up first, a conversation with Fred Viste, park manager at Whitefish Dunes State Park… which is a 865-acre day use park that was established in 1967. Viste says that Whitefish Dunes is popular because of its Nature Center and Boardwalk.  A current project at Whitefish Dunes is a timber operation aimed at stemming an outbreak of beech bark disease which has resulted in some temporary road and trail closures. The disease is a result of an interaction between a type of insect and a fungus that can cause the trees to look like they’re covered in white wool. Infected trees can have weakened wood that causes branches or even trunks to break during strong winds. Viste says that the current timber harvest is being done in the interest of safety at the park.  The total timber harvest represents about 7 percent of the park acreage. The second half of our show has Mike Karempolis talking with BJ Dorshner of Sport-O-Motive in Appleton about getting your boat ready for the open water season.  To hear both interviews, click Fishing Report on this website.  This Saturday we’re joined by Lieutenant Jason Stanko of the United States Coast Guard Cutter Mobile Bay.  Door County Outdoors airs at 8:30AM on WDOR.
