Condominiums for Fish

Posted Saturday May 27, 2017 by wf_admin

The fishing for bass, bluegill and bream is much improved 45 miles northwest of Little Rock in Harris Brake Lake thanks in part to your support. Created in 1955, the original wood habitat in the man-made impoundment was terribly decayed. Working with the Harris Brake Lake Association of Perryville, between 600 and 700 fish “condominiums” were constructed using snow fencing, milk crates and copper wire. According Tom Sekely, then Chairman of the Association, “The benefits derived from this project almost immediately exceeded our expectations. The changes in construction and materials provided twice the number of crappie condos, a more endurable unit without any increase in cost.” Shortly after the condos were in place, the local newspaper noted that a two pound crappie was caught in the project area.
