The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will hold a public meeting Jan. 7 to seek the public’s input concerning a gizzard shad eradication project at Grant County’s Corinth Lake. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Eastern time at the Curtis Gates Lloyd Wildlife Management Area (WMA) Clubhouse near Crittenden.
Corinth Lake is a 96-acre lake owned by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. It is managed for fishing.
Gizzard shad introduced from an unknown source are interfering with the management of panfish in the lake. Gizzard shad removal will help begin the restoration of the panfish fishery that was once popular at Corinth Lake.
Kentucky Fish and Wildlife officials encourage all anglers who fish Corinth Lake to attend this meeting and express their opinions concerning this management technique.
The meeting site is one half mile southeast of Crittenden. From I-75, take the Crittenden exit. Follow U.S. 25 South; turn left across the railroad tracks to the area.
