|Please describe the project objective(s).
Mossback Habitat will be assembled and deployed by Tennessee Bass Nation High School Anglers. This project will have several levels, educate anglers and improve habitat in this reservoir. Tims Ford is also part of the Bill Dance Trail in Tennessee, we are working closely with the State Park Rangers developing a fishing area for the disabled inside Tims Ford State Park.
|Please describe the project methods. Will the product be used in conjunction with existing habitat restoration efforts on the reservoir? Will the product supplement natural brush, rock, or other materials being added to the reservoir?
We are also planning to deploy stake beds, brush piles and our annual Christmas for fishes project. We use donated block and manmade anchor systems.
|Will state fish and wildlife agency staff be directly involved in the project? How so (planning, site selection, participation in installation)? Is there an associated lake or habitat management plan that states the need for structural habitat enhancement?
Asst. Chief of Fisheries Jason Henegar and the Southern Reservoir crews will be involved in all aspects of the the project from planning to deployment
