Here’s another sign that winter is on the way. The CarpGuard at the dam has been dismantled and stored until next spring. Once spring arrives again, the carp, like salmon, will likely attempt to jump the dam into the lake. The carp are not nearly as agile as salmon, but when the water is high enough, they do slither up to the dam and make the hop. And since we have no bears trying to fish them out before they hit the lake, the CarpGuard prevents this nasty invasive species from building their population here.
Some people viewing the DamCam spotted a dock piece trying to make its way over the dam into the stream. That has been moved off to the side away from the water flow. This dock piece probably found its way into the lake during Sunday’s storm. Anyone missing a section of dock?
So many people at Clark Lake love it here and are willing to take time and make special efforts to improve the lake experience for all of us. Hats off to all who volunteer with a shout out to John Deming and Flip Reynolds.
