I saw several airboats spraying grass up in birch today. Company was Lochsaw Ranch. Don’t know what chemical they were spraying but it grass up all around the banks. Also saw a city of Dallas truck talking to the guys before they headed out. Hope they were doing something benificial to the lake...

They were, just probably not beneficial to the fishermen.

Be great to get a listing of all areas sprayed. This really sucks.

I would think any spraying would be contracted thru tpw or SRA. Not sure why they'd be spraying hydrilla? Is that a known salvinia area?

Hopefully it wasn't the same idiots that sprayed on Toledo. While they did spray some infested salvinia areas, they also decided it would be a good idea to also spray all the main lake haygrass in well known areas.

There’s no Salvinia there. I watched them for a while, even took some video and pics. Can’t get the pics to load up from my iPhone. They were spraying tall leafy grass growing from the edge. Also sprayed everything to the back of that pocket. Then they went past 2946 bridge and kept going north.

They ran most of the fish out of Chaney branch when they sprayed it.

this really sucks... unfortunately city of dallas owns the water rights... so they stop the dairy farmers from draining into the lake with organic waste,... but load up on the grass killer chemicals... wonderful...

Great, I planned on making a trip out there for a couple of nights of fishing but may change my mind until it settles down some.

Hopefully some of the lake fork guys can enlightened us on this a little more. I am sure someone reading this knows whats going on but whether or not they will share it with us is another story. Heard Mark Stevinson brought grass spraying up on fishing show last weekend but details were vague. Something is up.

Been happening for years. There are those that will say it’s all fake news and the drought and high water is the culprit. They were probably spraying hyacinth but when they do it zaps pretty much everything. Also seems the spraying starts everytime hydrilla starts to reappear. Lots of hydrilla in some places but probably not for long.

Inland Fisheries contracts for invasive plant management on Fork every year. The guys they hired last year did a poor job and were late getting there. It didn't sit well with anglers or TPWD. That group likely won't be coming back. Looks like an experienced new crew was hired this year. Some management is necessary, but hopefully they were a little more gun shy with the weedkiller this year.
