OBSERVATIONS ON CONTROL OF VEGETATION IN LAKE CATIlERINE USING ISRAELI CARP AND A FALL AND WINTER DRAWDOWN

Due to a combination of factors, Lake Catherine, a 3,000 - acre reservoir which had never known a vegetation problem, suddenly became congested with rooted aquatic vegetation in 1960. The vegetation, mostly coontail, Ceratophyllum demersum,and Elodea sp., could be controlled with chemicals and consequently various chemicals were used by the riparian property owners on small localized areas. However, for the larger, main body of the lake, chemical herbicides were considered too expensive to be practical. In October 1960 the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission was petitioned both by...

An Attempt to Improve Stream Fishing by Manipulating the Lakes in the Stream Basin

In the summer of 1963, 18 of the 21 old river lakes in the Saline River basin, comprising 168 acres, were completely eradicated using rotenone. These lakes were subsequently overstocked with game fishes from our state-owned hatcheries. The theory being that fish from crowded populations will emigrate during overflow periods, providing desirable fish as stocks for the river. These fish were stocked early enough in the year to allow them to grow to sub-adults and to become acclaimed by the time of the first flood water.
