Meeting scheduled to address Bull Shoals tailwater

Thursday, July 16, 2009

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have entered into a cooperative agreement to place habitat improvement structures in a one mile section of the Bull Shoals tailwater immediately below Bull Shoals Dam.

The primary purpose of this project is to provide cover for young trout during periods of high flow.

The work will be performed by Kesser International of Little Rock and the project is expected to begin in early August. Work will be completed by Oct. 1 so that no disruption to the brown trout spawn occurs.

An informational meeting will be held on July 14 at 7 p.m. on the Arkansas State University campus in Mountain Home at the McMullan Lecture Hall.

Representatives from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be available to answer any questions regarding the project and will present the plan for the project.
