Has the grass been sprayed at Welsh? All over the lake? Had a buddy tell me that a friend of his told him the entire lake got sprayed. That true?

Did he see them spray the grass or is he just guessing? Ask him if he actually saw them spraying the grass, then get back with us.

Not sure if it was sprayed or not but I did also hear the grass was gone(at least not as much grass as there once was). I have not confirmed for myself.

I was there recently [9-22] and it's definitely not matted like it was. It's still there but just not on the surface like we are used to seeing

Did the level come up (i.e. did they start pumping from pines) again?

If so, wouldn't that impact the matting on the surface for a time?

They can spray it and it will come back, needs to be knocked back a little every once in a while

The only lake Ive been to that made me say there’s to much grass… and I LOVE fishing grass. Hopefully if they are spraying they have someone doing it that will knock it back but won’t wipe it out completely.

TOTALLY agree! I've said it for the last couple of years that Welsh was the one place I would love to see a little less grass. I wish they went with an acdurately estimated amount of carp vs spraying (if they actaully did that at all) but I don't think carp would live in those water temps.

From what I've heard is they sprayed the powerline right of ways leading to the power plant. Thought is the herbicide they used got into the lake and knocked the grass back. As far as pumping in water, I heard that since the plant is closing they are not gonna repair the pump that pumps the water from pines. It's an expensive repair for a plant that is closing.

Welsh does NOT NEED ANY SPRAYING. When the water temps get over 100 degrees for quite a while the grass dies off on its own.

No need to ruin the lake by spraying like they have done to so many other lakes.

They were pumping water in two days ago.
