Commercial Fishing Nets On Kentucky Lake

From Shannon McFarlin at

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife is warning boaters of commercial fishing net locations.
In a letter sent out Tuesday morning, the Department of Fish and Wildlife is warning those out on the lake that commercial anglers on Kentucky and Barkley lakes are placing ‘indicator flags’ to mark the locations of their nets, according to the Marshall County Emergency Management Agency.
“We want to make anglers and recreational boaters aware of ongoing commercial angling and net locations,” said Jessica Morris, fisheries biologist with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
“These bright yellow flags are visible for a mile. While nets are generally set 3-feet underneath the surface, boaters still should not go between flags or use them for skiing buoys because of the risk of entanglement.”
The Department of Fish and Wildlife had previously voted to allow commercial fisherman to deploy the nets during summer weekends as part of their effort to control the invasive Asian Carp in the lakes.

This Week At The Park
