BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has delivered 22,000 bass to a Bloomington lake that is being replenished after being drained in 2012 so its dam could be repaired.
DNR fisheries biologist David Kittaka tells The Herald-Times reports the bass delivered to the city-owned Griffy Lake last week is the first of several shipments due this spring from state fish hatcheries. Other fish that will be part of the restocking are 81,750 bluegill, 27,250 redear and 21,800 crappie.
The lake was drained to make repairs to the dam and to dredge silt from the lake bed. The work cost $1.4 million and was financed by a grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.
