I haven't fished Fayette in two years until today. I was looking forward to fishing the reeds but there are no reeds left! What happened to them!?

There have always been reeds, even in the winter, all that is left are dead stalks and muddy banks!

One of my favorite reed spots was barren months ago. Someone, for some reason, must have felt the need to spray them. Ridiculous!

Several months ago they lowered the lake about 3-4ft and they took that machine in there and cut all the reeds on banks that didn't have standing timber in the way. I'm assuming they also sprayed them, but that's just a guess. It's a shame because I have had several great years of pitching those reeds with jigs and frogs and just whacking fish!

The only thing that makes sense to me is they were killed to reduce water usage. Less plants using water less water they have to pump into the lake especially during drought conditions.

I would doubt very seriously if clogged intakes caused by reeds are a big problem.
