The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host a public meeting on January 26, 2023, 6:30 pm, at the M.W. Boudreaux Visitor Center to gather input from the area’s angling community on the Mark Twain Lake Fish Habitat Project. The Corps of Engineers, with support from community volunteers and the Missouri Department of Conservation, has been engaged with creating fish habitat structures constructed of PVC materials and placing the structures in the basin of the lake to provide quality habitat and improve recreational fishing opportunities. This on-going project has improved fisheries habitat at four locations of the lake.
Grant funding has recently been received to expand the capability of the project to other areas of the lake. Community fishing enthusiasts are encouraged to attend the meeting and provide their perspectives on improving the fisheries habitat of the lake.
