Spraying

The grass is just starting to come up in Lake Cataouatche. The LW&F was out spraying last week. Does anyone know how to contact them so we can get them to stop and let the grass grow again? Thats the only chacne this lake has with all the attention it recieves.

Submerged aquatics actually aren't treated with sprayers: That usually means they are treating emergents like hyacinths.

And, believe me, the agency doesn't have enough money left to treat all of Cataouatche. It would take hundreds of thousands of dollars.

So I don't think it's a big deal. At best, if they are treating the submerged vegetation it's probalby just to keep some boat lanes open.

George at the launch talked to them that morning, and they said they were spraying for hyacinths. They were seen out in the lake spraying open water areas. The grass looked like it was going to really take off after last spring, and they sprayed the heck out of it. The only area they left alone was at the mouths of the cuts, thats why there was a large grass bed there all summer and most of the boats fished it. Last year the LW&F and the Corp were both sen spraying out there. Which one is spraying the grass???? A fishermen asked the Corp boat why they were spraying the grass, and they told them that the crab fishermen had complained about the grass.
