Chinese Carp Problem

Reply
 
With all the recent flooding the past year I am curious as to whether this may affect the spread of Chinese carp populations in lousiana. Has anyone witnessed a problem in our waterways?

Yes, I have. At the Atchafalya River recently and had them jumping all around. One actually landed in our boat. This was while river was very low and around rock jetties.

I am quite sure that these Asian Carp will follow the flood waters upstream and only make the problem WORSE.

It is a real tragedy that invasive species will severely impact our freshwater but there appears to be no solution.

The only place I haven't seen one is at False River, yet.
