Drawdown at Children's Lake to Kill off Nuisance Plants
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission recently lowered the water level at Children’s Lake to control vegetation growth.

Aquatic plants provide very good habitat for both young and adult fish, as well as aquatic insects. However, too much vegetation can negatively impact fishing and boating opportunities and has the potential to disrupt the balance of fish population in a lake.
