[DNR] Public hearing on fishing at West Boggs Lake, Aug. 21
Start Date: 8/7/2013 All Day
End Date: 8/7/2013
Entry Description

Anglers can learn more about a plan to improve fishing at West Boggs Lake in Loogootee at an Aug. 21 open house by the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife and the Daviess-Martin Joint County Parks and Recreation Department (D-MJPRD).

The open house is from 5 to 7 p.m. at the West Boggs Park Activity Center, at the intersection of Deckard Road and Crane Lane inside the property. Entry to the park will be free for people attending the open house.

The public can meet with staff from the DNR Fish & Wildlife and the D-MJPRD. Presenters will explain the 2013 summer fish survey and the timeline for the 2014 fisheries renovation of the lake. The public can then ask questions and submit comments about the renovation.

West Boggs Lake has been invaded by gizzard shad, which compete with bluegill and small bass for food. In lakes with gizzard shad populations, bluegill growth is stunted and bass numbers decline.     

In 2014, the DNR plans to lower the lake level, salvage adult bass and channel catfish, and eradicate the existing fish population using rotenone, an approved fish toxicant. The lake will then be restocked with desirable game species. More information on the renovation is at dnr.IN.gov/fishwild/7418.htm.
