New fish attractors were added at this lake to improve fish habitat. The brushpiles were added in various depths, but most are located in 3 - 6 ft. of water. Five brushpiles were sunk on the levee in 15 - 20 ft. Below are GPS coordinates for some of the sites. Be sure your GPS is reading decimal degrees (shown below) and not degrees-minutes-seconds when locating these attractors.
