Like Russ (tinker1) said the short answer is no. The long answer is no, not without 1st going to the COE's office and filling out a permit showing what you will be putting into the lake, where in the lake(i.e. GPS co-ordinates, at what depth will it be placed, what will be the depth of the top of the structure be at low pool and how will it be secured to the bottom. Then the COE will either grant the permit or deny it. With that all being said, yes every year there are people building their own private brush piles without a permit. But if you get caught the COE can fine you and the fines can be very severe. Which is why they have the annual Christmas tree donation program that is overseen by both the COE and the DNR.
