The Waco Inland Fisheries District worked with Bosque and Hill County 4H members and other volunteers on two separate occasions to assemble and deploy both commercial and PVC fish habitat structures to help attract and hold sportfish for bank and boat anglers. The first project, consisting of three freshwater reefs, was completed near Uncle Gus’ Marina in the South Fork Rocky Creek during February 2021. The reefs consisted of PVC Cubes and PVC Crappie Condos and funds for this project were raised by the Bosque and Hill County 4H. The most recent project, also consisting of three freshwater reefs, was completed in three coves along the shores of Lake Whitney State Park during November 2021. These were comprised of commercial fish habitat from Mossback Fish Habitat and funding was provided by Academy Sports + Outdoors. The concrete blocks used to sink these habitats were donated by Quality Brickworks in Robinson, Texas.  A map and coordinates are listed below. Coordinates are also available in downloadable files.
