Artificial Habitats Give Fish Permanent Home
Fish at Claytor Lake now have a new place to call home. Groups from across Virginia are installing habitats that act as an alternative to plants in the lake.

“This project is to encourage fish habitat and fish growth and spawning on Claytor Lake," said Laura Walters with the Friends of Claytor Lake. "There's not as much cover for fish on Claytor be it vegetation or artificial structures."

They're Mossback Fish Habitat structures with grooves and spaces perfect for a fish to hang out, similar to plants fish use for hiding. Once those structures reach the bottom of the lake, they'll be a permanent home for fish, acting as an alternative to the invasive hydrilla plant that FOCL has worked to cut out of the lake.
