Wow, what did they do to the vegetation? It’s like it got hit by a nuclear missile. It’s like non existent on what once was plentiful. Anyhow, got out Tuesday. Weather was nice and winds were down. Scored a couple small bass on a black grub but boy it was like a totally new water.

as you might know, that is the result of the chemical treatments to remove Hydrilla.....unfortunately, it has decimated all of the milfoil and a good deal of the coontail

Yes, I did hear about the treatments. I guess im surprised how quick the impact was. The word "decimated" is appropriate.

A couple of years ago I volunteered to help clean out the hydrilla in Wampus Pond in Armonk. The group filled more than 100 large garbage bags. I did a rough calculation in my head when we were done and I estimated it at more than a ton. But all we accomplished was clearing out a small space around the dock. We could have been there for months and not finished it.

As confirmed by the DEP, the Hydrilla treatments will continue this year. Sadly, my favorite reservoir will never be the same.

Out a few times, numbers have been very good, lots of pickerel though, size on bass has been good.
No complaints from me, hope it doesn’t affect the spawn.
