Attention Lake Boon fishers! A summary of fish conditions in Massachusetts was updated in February by the State Department of Public Health.
In Lake Boon, children under twelve, pregnant or nursing mothers, and women of childbearing age are advised to not eat Black Crappie or Largemouth Bass because of mercury contamination. Others are advised to limit Black Crappie and Largemouth Bass consumption to no more than two 8 to 12 oz servings a month.
