Buoy Installation...

The Fox River Runners Boat Club installs, removes, maintains and purchases navigation buoys as a public service to the city and residents of Omro and area boaters. Buoys are placed from Lake Butte des Morts to west of the Omro city limits towards Eureka. The club also works with the city of Omro in the placement of no wake buoys within the city limits.

Buoy installation for the 2016 season will begin on or after April 15th as weather and water conditions permit. High water will result in a delay. The buoys will be placed as soon as possible.
