One Fish, Two Fish

Indiana Department of Natural Resources employees Dan Carnahan, Craig Roberts and Ryan Gourley checked one of several nets in Beaver Lake on Wednesday morning as they conducted a fish count of the lake. As part of the survey, several nets were placed in the lake Tuesday, and the next day the three men from the Sugar Ridge Fish and Wildlife Area in Winslow counted the fish collected. The survey was to check to see how the fish population was doing after the lake was drained last year for the installation of the newly enlarged spillway at the lake’s dam. As part of the survey, Carnahan said they still have to electroshock the lake, which uses electricity to stun the fish and cause them to float to the surface to be gathered for data before being released back into the lake. That survey will be conducted at night, most likely early next month. Carnahan said he is encouraged to see the amount of fish and the different species caught in their nets so far.

Nancy Herzog of Jasper set the hook on her first fish of the morning as she fished from a dock on Beaver Lake on Wednesday. Herzog used to own a cabin directly across the lake from where she was fishing and said she still enjoys spending much of her free time fishing on the lake.
