Table 1 includes Lake Laura. Table 1 legend: "Water temperature is an important variable determining how suitable a lake is for different fish species. The Midwest Glacial Lakes Partnership used projected climate scenarios to predict future water temperatures for lakes throughout the region. Suitability models were run to estimate whether representative warn-water (e.g. bluegill), cool-water (e.g. northern pike and walleye), and cold-water (e.g. cisco, burbot, and lake trout) fishes are likely to be present in 2018 and 2050.... The table ... summarizes these findings and the likelihood these lakes will be refuges for walleye in the future.
The Lake Laura data: Species Suitability (2018): Warm-water, Cool-water, and Cold-Water Species. Species Suitability (2050): Warm-water and Cool-water Species. Probability of Species Dominance (2040-2064) and (2065-2089) [Both year groups were the same]: Naturally reproducing walleye populations >49%, high largemouth bass abundance <49%. Vulnerability to Climate Change: High. Refuge for Walleye Under Future Conditions: Likely.
