The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) Fisheries Division will be holding a local public meeting to discuss the latest information on Asian carp and sportfish in the region.

• Latest sportfish survey results - 2018 Lake Barkley creel survey results.

• Cormorants- Are they a problem?

• New fish habitat projects.

• What happened to the grass at Kentucky Lake?

• The effects of tournament fishing on bass populations.

The meeting will be held at the Lyon County Convention Center at 309 Lee S. Jones Park Road from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
