Tommy Bryan's special place to fish is False River. But he says the
river has lost its shine over the years because of the decline of water
quality and the number of fish.
Bryan said it is the silt in the water
that is making the banks of the river soft. Making it uncomfortable for fish to
breed means fewer fish to catch. Now, Wildlife and Fisheries is trying to get
the fish population back up.
"They were spreading gravel on the river bottom, in about four to
five feet of water, which will facilitate the spawning of fish. Fish need to
spawn on a hard substrate," said Bryan.
Bryan says the gravel will also help keep the silt down, improving
the water quality, which affects more than just fishing.
"It affects the piers, the motors on your outdoor motor. It
affects everything - even swimming, " said Bryan
State Representative Major Thibaut says False River is one of the
greatest natural resources in Louisiana. He says the state is going to do
everything it can to preserve it.
"We are just luckily enough to have it right
here in our backyard. And we want to make sure it's here for our kids and
grandkids," said Thibaut.
