FISHERIES PROJECT ON LAKE ALLEGAN
This project will be starting near the end of August and proceeding through early September. Carp solutions out of MN will be conducting a trial carp removal effort. The process will involve electrofishing on Lake Allegan and the Kalamazoo River near Allegan, and the long term deployment (4 weeks) of box nets. The nets will remain in the water and be baited and lifted and checked periodically. The goal is to determine how big the carp population is and if it is feasible to reduce the numbers through a removal effort.
There will be an informational posting at the Echo Point and Upper Lake Allegan boat launches.
