[DNR] DNR to begin restocking Griffy Lake after repair work
Start Date: 12/2/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 12/2/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
As nature begins to refill Griffy Lake with water, the Department of Natural Resources will refill it with fish.

The city of Bloomington, which owns the 109-acre lake, drained it in 2012 to work on a drain control.

On Nov. 16, contractors closed the lake gate and began allowing it to refill.

DNR’s Division of Fish & Wildlife, which manages the fishery at Griffy Lake, plans to restock it with bluegill, redear sunfish, black crappie, largemouth bass and channel catfish. Stocking will begin next spring.

Griffy Lake has long been known as a quality fishing lake.

The goal is to produce a self-sustaining, balanced game fish population.

The Division stocks fish based on decades of fish management experience to ensure a proper balance of predator and prey to maintain a balanced fish population.

DNR’s Division of Law Enforcement, along with the Division of Fish & Wildlife, wants to remind folks that it is illegal to stock any fish into state-owned or state-managed lakes and streams. Unpermitted illegal stockings could jeopardize the development of a quality sport fishery at Griffy by introducing unwanted species that would compete for food and space.

There will be an increased DNR presence around Griffy Lake to protect the resource.

Any alteration in the fish population at this stage in the development could prove detrimental for decades and in most cases cause permanent harm.
