Fish Habitat Day set for February 9 at Sardis
Crappie and bass fishermen have long known the value of placing brush and trees in lakes to provide cover for minnows and small fry.
They could pick off the larger specimens that were hanging around the cover looking for an easy meal. In recent years, catfishermen have also realized that their favorite quarry also resides around these cover sites. As reservoirs age and the flooded timber and brush rots away, this protective cover becomes more and more important.
With these factors in mind, the Sardis Lake Field Office is sponsoring a Fish Habitat Day to be held on Saturday, February 9, from 8 a.m. until 12 noon. Volunteers are invited to meet at Beach Point or Teckville Landing, where cedar trees, wire, and weights have been stockpiled.
Those who can are encouraged to bring pontoon boats or ATVs to assist in the placement of weights and trees; however they are not required to participate. Also, remember to bring extra life jackets in case you have other volunteers on the boat with you or your helmet if you are on an ATV.
Lunch will be provided at the Corps of Engineers Maintenance Compound near Sardis dam and at Holiday Lodge at Teckville Landing.
For more information on this event, contact the Sardis Lake Field Office at (662) 563-4531.
