Drawdown Scheduled for Chicot Lake

 The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has scheduled a drawdown for Chicot Lake, just north of Ville Platte, to begin on Tuesday, September 3 to control nuisance aquatic vegetation. 

The water level will be lowered 3 feet from pool stage. Water fluctuations are proven to yield significant beneficial effects for fisheries and aquatic vegetation control, particularly on Chicot Lake.

The drawdown is part of an integrated lake management plan, which utilizes several different control methods to control overabundant nuisance vegetation.  The Department stocked triploid grass carp during the winter of 2012 and will continue herbicide applications.

Although the lake will not be closed to fishing, caution is advised of boaters during the low water period, as boat lanes will not provide normal clearance for underwater obstructions.

The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana’s abundant natural resources.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
