Aquatic Plant Harvester Improves Fishing
An aquatic plant harvester has been used to scoop up the floating islands of vegetation that have built up on the lake for decades.

The process will make the lake easier to navigate for fishermen and other boaters, and should improve the fishing there as well, state experts say.

“It will improve the habitat of the lake,” said project manager Ed Hayes, a biological scientist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. “This is preventative maintenance,”

The project will help not only fish, but also the birds and turtles that call the lake home.

Restoring Native Vegetation - Lake Conroe has a volatile history of aquatic vegetation management. Hydrilla infested the reservoir soon after the reservoir filled, resulting in coverage of approximately 10,000 acres by the early 1980’s. To control hydrilla, large numbers diploid grass carp were stocked. Grass carp not only controlled hydrilla, but also eliminated most other aquatic vegetation in the lake and continued to inhibit plant growth into the late 1990’s.
