Biologists of the Institute for Fisheries Research conducted fisheries inventories of Ilk and Round lakes during August 1956, These waters had previously been inventoried in the summer of 1931, when they were also mapped. Sounding and determination of bottom soil types were repeated on Elk Lake in 1955. Some netting was done on Ilk Lake by a Michigan Fish Commission crew in 1891, and by biologists from the University of Michigan in 1923. A biologist of the Institute's staff made a study of the muskellunge fisheries of Elk and Round lakes in 1953 and 1954.
