DRAW DOWN

After the draw down, Eagle Lake has a shoreline!  This is looking west from Pan Yack Park

And the shoreline gets wider near the Racine County Park

There is even a sandbar!

The draw down reveals erosion

    NOW IT IS TIME FOR THE DNR, CHEMICALS AND FISH KILL - November 4, 2008

The Chemicals Arrive at the County Park

The DNR Folks are ready

First, the crop duster helicopter sprayed the lake

 

Men in protective gear getting ready to apply chemicals

Then the DNR boat did the "finishing touches"

By 3 PM a few large fish appeared; by 4 PM the smaller fish were seen

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2008 - MORE FISH SURFACED

THANK YOU!!!

Hello All Tired Neighbors!!                                      

Thank you so much for the time in the cold wet weather today.

All your efforts got it done in less than 5 hours. 

If for any reason you would like a souvenir Big Fish Pickup Bucket they will be at the lake edge of McNamara Rd.  For the next few days.  Help yourself.

The Big Fish winners were Marie Fredericks and Adam Kaprellian/Tim McNamara.

Thanks Much

PS  A little lemon juice will get out the fish smell!
