[DNR] Open house about West Boggs Lake fishing, Aug. 22
Start Date: 8/1/2012Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 8/1/2012End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Anglers can learn more about a plan to improve fishing at West Boggs Lake in Loogootee at an Aug. 22 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 Division of Fish & Wildlife and the D-MJPRD and ask questions and submit comments about the proposed 2014 fisheries renovation of West Boggs Lake.

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 the bass numbers decline.

In 2014, DNR plans to lower the lake level and use rotenone, an approved fish toxicant, to eradicate the existing fish population, then restock the lake with desirable game species. More information on the renovation is at

West Boggs Park is located at 16117 U.S. 231, Loogootee.

Those who cannot attend the open house can send questions or comments to or mail them to Fish Management District 5, P.O. Box 16, Avoca, IN 47420.
