Greenbriar Lake Habitat Improvement
Location: Greenbriar Lake
Fisheries recently completed a habitat improvement project at Greenbriar Lake in Greenbriar State Park. Discarded Christmas trees were placed in approximately 10 feet of water to attract bass and sunfish for fishermen. Cement was formed around the base of each tree so that when submerged most of the trees remained upright. Trees were placed in deep water habitat in 17 to 20 feet of water earlier this year. In total, nearly 50 trees were placed in the lake. Down imaging sonar clearly showed the trees and nearby fish. For those that want to try their luck around these structures, here are the coordinates: deep water structure N39 32.3472 - W77 37.1484, shallow water structure N39 32.19 - W77 37.23 Good Luck!
