HBAA assists with KDWP habitat project
HAYS, KS (Dec. 12, 2019) — Members of the Hays Bass Anglers Association assisted with a request to make components for an upcoming fisheries habitat project as they made anchor handles on Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019. KDWP&T often has a need for these pieces that are used to make weights to sink fish habitat like brush and trees. The club made it part of their annual conservation promise to participate in needed fish habitat projects in the northwest Kansas region where the club is based. The project helped fulfill an upcoming need for these handles for a project being coordinated by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism. While the handles are earmarked for an upcoming fisheries habitat project at Scott State Fishing Lake, the handles may be used for other projects as well. In the picture above, HBAA members Clayton Rudman, left, Darrel VonFeldt, second from left, Klint VonFeldt, second from right and Keith Harmoney, right, show some of the anchor handles they made. Habitat improvement for all species of fish, including bass, is a coordinated state-wide effort in Kansas.
