For the first time since it was founded in 2008, the Detroit Lakes chapter of Let’s Go Fishing has a new president.

Tim Miller took over the reins from chapter founder Dave Hochhalter last month.


Though he grew up in Kindred, N.D., and spent 33 years as a police officer in Thief River Falls, Miller’s ties to Detroit Lakes run deep.

“My family used to come here on weekends during the summer when I was growing up,” he explained.
