NEWS: Greene lake was shocked and we found an excessive amount of large catfish. Therefore, the creel limit for catfish has been raised to 10, and the Fish Committee is requesting that everyone to keep all catfish and any large (6 - 8 inch) panfish caught for the rest of the year. Getting them out of the lake will make room for other fish to grow.
Also, there will be a catfish derby at the Family Picnic on September 14, from 8am to 11:00am. There will be prizes for the longest catfish and most catfish caught for the following age ranges: 6 and under, 7-10, 11-14, 15-17, and adult.
We will be frying up the caught fish for the picnic, so anyone who helps with the fish prep will get a work party credit. See Randy Donka (Send eMail) to sign up to help with the fishing derby.
Anyone still interested in volunteering their time to the fish committee, please let Jim Sanders know Send eMail. Volunteers will be assisting in collecting important fish data regarding size, etc.
