Meeting on Tri-Lakes largemouth Bass Project is April 25

Interested anglers and members of the public are invited to an open meeting April 25 in Columbia City to learn and ask questions about a largemouth bass management project planned for Tri-Lakes.

The multi-year project aims to increase the number of sizable largemouth bass in Tri-Lakes through a series of largemouth bass relocations.

The meeting will be held at the Thorncreek Township Fire Department, 821 E 500 N. From 7-8:30 p.m. ET, DNR fisheries biologists will introduce the project, explain its goals, share data and anticipated results, and then answer questions.

“Local anglers have wanted us to improve the size of largemouth bass at Tri-Lakes for several years,” said Tyler Delauder, the district’s fisheries biologist. “We hope this project will allow us to do that.”
