Harlan Rehab Project

Lots of dirt being moved at the mouth of Methodist Cove at Harlan County Reservoir right now.  Found this update on the project:

Partners Working Hard to Deliver Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration

We know that bay and cove habitats are very important to reservoir fisheries.  Unfortunately, over time, shoreline erosion and sediment deposition can isolate those habitats from the main body of the reservoir.  When that happens fish populations can be deprived of important habitats and ultimately fishing can decline, at least for some species.

Of course, the bigger the reservoir the bigger the project.  Partnerships are crucial to accomplishing large projects.  The work ongoing at Methodist Cove at Harlan is major, but it also should produce big results!
