HARRIS Times Special Correspondent As a result of the opening flood gates into Lake Ponchatrain and the shell dredging in Lake Maure- pas, has fishing and spring spawn- ing in rivers and bayous been effected? C.R. Denton: "'They ruined it? I mean, for the next couple years the fish will be slow in the spawning season, not to mention the water that is so polluted now." Milton Hymel, full time fishermen, "'The spawning of brim and bass are taking to the smaller bayous, away from the main channels. Whereas the catfish can live in a different habitat. So. it's not that 'bad now "" Bobby Harris- thinks it has had a drastic affect on the fish: "They don't grow much anymore. They're all little. The water is always murky and the fish stay in srnaller schools " Allen Kimball- "'The river's main l)robk'm is that it is so commercial- ized lt*s hard to fish anymore on the river due to all those darn uncourteous boaters '" Robert B. Harris Jr.- "I think the biggest problem is the constant starting and stopping of the dred- ging which causes the water con- difims to change so often and that causes the spawning to decrease As an avid scubu diver, the water clarity has no visibility at ail in my opinion, the rivers will never be as they used to due to industry." David LaRoux- "tt's a shame there's not enough people who care enough to stop the wasting of our waterways. Percy Lee- "'l think it's a stupid deal t mean. Lake Maurepas was set aside as a breeding sanctuary for shrimp by the state Wildlife and Fisheries Department. In my opinion, the dredging is a pure waste For fish like catfish, it's not much of a problem. But for the shrimp, in fact all the shellfish, it is purely detrimental.",' Jeff Harris- Fisherman and for- mer manager of Tickfaw Marina claims that -h's got to effect the fish The water conditions affect the rne;abolism of all the fish that live in that cloudy habitat. The Wildlife and Fisheries Dept, is defeating their purpose l'm a- gainst it and it's just not right. It doesn't take a biological scientist to figure that out.'"
