Lake Fork Public Meeting Planned

Anyone interested in Lake Fork should save this date: February 4, 2010.

On that date the Wood County Industrial Commission and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) will be hosting a public meeting at Lake Fork. This "State of the Lake" meeting will feature presentations by TPWD Inland Fisheries biologists and Sabine River Authority representatives.

Topics will include, but are not limited to: the status of the largemouth bass fishery at Lake Fork, invasive aquatic vegetation control, and water pumping activities. A large portion of the meeting will be reserved for attendees to ask questions in a "town hall" format.

All local business owners, lake homeowners, fishing guides, recreational anglers, and anyone else with an interest in the resources at Lake Fork are invited to attend.

This public meeting will take place from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Land’s End Fire Department.
