  • Greers Ferry Lake Nursery Pond Finglerling Protection

    This past week we cut 35 large cedar trees off of Greers Ferry WMA and sank them into nursery pond outflow cove to give our fry a fighting chance from the predators of Greers Ferry. This was so much woody cover that it took up one pallet of concrete and two pallets of cinder blocks to sink the trees! The brush piles were put in 10 to 15 FOW in the back of the cove. The trees should settle out as they get water logged. We made a stump pile from all of the trees (35 stumps) and sank them in about 20 FOW. We also sank two 20 foot tall trees and some artificial trees at the same depth and vicinity. This new structure will hopefully give the fry a place to hide and anglers some more brush to fish in the spring. We will collect (single pole sampling of course) more hybrids next spring when we release the next crop and compare their gut contents to this years fish. Hopefully we will find fewer fingerlings in their stomachs next year.

      Great work going on there.
      After a week long stay at Greers Ferry lake I'll have to say that I saw more work being done there than I've seen in all my years around my state's lakes.

      That look's like a lot of hard work, but the pay off is what counts! The fish will love you for it.
