Will be used in fish habitat improvement project
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 14, 2016) — The Warix Run Boat Ramp at Cave Run Lake will be closed July 25-29 to serve as a staging area for a fish habitat improvement project. Artificial habitat structures will be installed in the waters at Warix Run and nearby coves. The habitat is expected to be completed in 2017.
“This effort is part of a large, multi-year habitat project for Cave Run,” said District Ranger Jon Kazmierski with the Daniel Boone National Forest. “Smaller fish are attracted to these areas as a place to hide from predators, but predators use these areas as a place to search for food. Anglers have more fishing locations and opportunities for a good catch.”
Kentucky Fish and Wildlife, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Forest Service and several Cave Run Lake angling groups are partnering to improve the lake’s fish habitat.
