Bone Lake Fish Barriers


For years, carp and bullheads wreaked havoc on Bone and Moody Lakes. The rough fish uprooted native aquatic plants and stirred up sediment on the lake bottoms, muddying the water and releasing nutrients like phosphorus, which in turn contribute to algae blooms during the late summer and fall. The installation of fish barriers prevent carp and bullheads from moving into and out of Bone and Moody Lakes and also prevent the fish from moving into wetlands to spawn.

The barriers use stop logs to physically prevent the passage of fish. The latest stop log information can be found here: Bone Lake Fish Barrier Operations Log
