Horseshoe Bend Mill Pond

Would like to know if the F&G plans on doing any weed control on Horseshoe Bend Mill pond.
I am talking about the weeds that grow from the bottom up.If not when do you plan to it is so over grown it is not worth fishing any more.
Thanks

Answer

We do treat several fishing ponds around the state with herbicides to reduce aquatic vegetation so people can fish.  It's an expensive process and one where you need to be careful because you can just as easily kill fish.  We'll monitor Horseshoe Bend Pond this coming year and see what we can do.
