Waters Enhanced For Urban Anglers and City’s Enjoyment

Posted Wednesday May 31, 2017 by wf_admin

The North Fork of the Little River in Hopkinsville, Kentucky has become a better urban fishery, with the assistance of Wildlife Forever. The project involved installing deflectors at 16 locations along a three-mile stretch of the river. Deflectors cause waters to create deeper channels and provide cooler water for fish during hot summer months. This project was one phase of an extensive river restoration project involving the entire community, as it joined the effort and held river clean-up projects, improved access areas, and developed a walking trail along the river. The Little River flows through the center of town and offers angling for bass, crappie, and bluegills.
