Asian Carp Inch Closer to Barrier

From Dale Bowman at the Chicago Sun Times : Asian carp closer to barrier than expected reports that Asian Carp have been found in the Brandon Road Pool, just downstream from Lockport Lock and Dam. Monitoring prior to this recent finding never found Asian Carp that close to the Barrier.

Asian Carp are known for flying out of the water when scared by passing boat motors, creating a dangerous flying hazard that has injured many boaters. Being hit with a big Asian Carp weighing dozens of pounds while traveling at speed in a boat can really put a damper on your day on the water.
