Carp Wars Update

Tremendous efforts have been underway lately to help clean up our lakes.   As previously discussed, the common carp and bullhead are bottom feeders that have compounded the lakes’06-08-15 3 issues with nitrogen and phosphorous.  For those who don’t know, a major effort to remove a majority of these fish that churn up the nutrients, that would otherwise be trapped in the sediment at the bottom, has been undertaken in a combined effort of Crystal Waters Project and the Crystal Loon Lakes Recreation group.   Check out their Facebook Page for an awesome timeline of the action and LIKE them while you’re at it!
