Patoka Lake Fish Habitat Build, Patoka Lake
Start Date: 12/7/2019Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 12/7/2019End Time: 4:30 PM
Event Description:
Help DNR improve fish habitat at Patoka Lake during a volunteer habitat structure build day. As reservoirs such as Patoka Lake age, the number and type of hiding places for prey fish decrease. The Reservoir Habitat Enhancement Program addresses this issue and works to build fish habitat where natural structure is lacking. Fish habitat structures built out of pallets are one option to improve habitat complexity at Patoka Lake.

On December 7th, 2019, a pallet structure build will take place from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. ET in the parking lot of the Patoka Lake office. Orientation will take place at 12:30; it is not necessary to stay for the entire event.

Pallets and other building materials will be provided. Please bring cordless drills, work gloves, and protective eyewear if you have them, but tools are not required to attend. We will be working outside so please dress accordingly (long pants and close-toed shoes). Bring snacks and plenty of drinking water.

Register for this event by signing up as a volunteer with DFW. Visit and follow instructions under "Sign up to Volunteer." Once you are signed up, please visit and click "Patoka Lake Habitat Build" to register for the event.
