Lake Fork “State of the Lake II” Public Meeting

TYLER — Anyone interested in Lake Fork should plan to attend the public meeting on Thursday, October 28, 2010.

On that date the Wood County Industrial Commission and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) will be hosting a public meeting at Lake Fork. The “State of the Lake II” (SOTL2) meeting is a follow-up to the first “State of the Lake” meeting which took place in February of this year. Similar to the first meeting, the SOTL2 will feature presentations by TPWD Inland Fisheries biologists, TPWD Law Enforcement personnel, and Sabine River Authority representatives.

Topics will include, but are not limited to: the status of invasive aquatic vegetation control, water pumping activities, and the rapid expansion of the white bass population in the reservoir. A large portion of the meeting will be reserved for attendees to ask questions in a “town hall” format.

All local business owners, lake homeowners, fishing guides, recreational anglers, and anyone else with an interest in the resources at Lake Fork are invited to attend.

This public meeting will take place from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Quitman United Methodist Church’s J.O.Y. Center located at 406 E. Lane St., Quitman TX 75783.

This new venue for the meeting can comfortably accommodate 400 attendees and features ample parking close to the facility.

For questions or additional information concerning the upcoming meeting, please contact TPWD Inland Fisheries management personnel in Tyler at (903) 593-5077.
