(WEST BOGGS) - The Department of Natural Resources and the Daviess-Martin Joint County Park and Recreation Department will have an open house at West Boggs Lake to discuss future plans for fishing at the lake.

The open house will be held from 5:00 p.m. To 7:00 p.m., August 22nd, at the West Boggs Park Activity Center.

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, the DNR plans to lower the lake level and use Rotenone to eradicate the existing fish population. The DNR will then restock the lake with desirable game species.
