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.

Officials To Lower Water Level Of Quinsigamond Lake & Flint Pond - The Irish Dam in Grafton will be lowered two or three inches a day until the water elevation in Lake Quinsigamond and Flint Pond is 24 to 30 inches lower than normal. The purpose of the draw downis to expose the roots of nuisance aquatic vegetation proliferating in Lake Quinsigamond and Flint Pond to freezing temperatures and thereby reducing some of the heavy weed growth along the shoreline and in the shallow areas of the lake and pond.
