The Lake Fork Sportsman’s Association and crews from Texas Parks & Wildlife Department Inland Fisheries Division will be planting 400 buttonbush plants on the Lake Fork shoreline in order to create aquatic habitat when the lake level increases.
This type of habitat will become increasingly important as Dallas begins withdrawing water from the lake. Buttonbush shrubs are well adapted to locations where water levels fluctuate substantially, which will likely be the case at Lake Fork.
Major funder for the project is the Lake Fork Sportsman’s Association, a group of anglers dedicated to preserving, protecting and promoting one of the world’s great fisheries. For more information, visit their web site,http://www.lakeforksportsmansassociation.com/.
