State Park Lake Surveys


We were asked to electrofish several East Tennessee State Park lakes for the third time during the Spring of 2006. This work is conducted under an agreement with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC). The goal of this effort is to enhance the quality of the park fisheries for the enjoyment of visitors and Tennessee anglers. The lakes in Big Ridge, Cove Lake, and Indian Mountain State Parks were sampled in 1999, 2003, and 2006.
