We wanted to let folks know that Pool 1 on Duck Creek will be closed to fishing for one partial day, which has yet to be determined, from first light of day until the completion of the job.
June 18th, 2014 UPDATE:
With summer heat and clear skies it appears that our window for treatment is begining to open up.
The window for application is between June 30-July 3rd or July 7-11th.
The tentative date is currently Tuesday, July 1st, that we are shooting to have partial closure of the lake.
Good luck fishing in the mean time. Thanks for your support.
On this day herbicide will be applied by helicopter to certain sections of the pool. We are spraying glyphosate, which is the same chemical as Roundup®, to reduce lotus, lilies, spatterdock, and dollarpads in a safe and approved aquatic formulation. It is non-toxic to fish, animals, and humans. Access to Pool 1 will be closed during the application. The following result will provide areas of open water for fishing access within the pool.
Weather conditions will determine which day is chosen for the application.
If you have further questions call 573-222-3337.
