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.
