Good article  . . . 

I think we all need to learn which type of grass are natural to Lake Conroe and which are invasive species. As we are fishing, we can be pay attention and report invasive species if we spot them.

Great article Ron and thanks for representing SCBC & the fishermen. Having been a homeowner on the lake for 14 years I have seen the full cycle of what the grass carp have done to the lake Conroe's native vegetation. I understand the need to keep invasive plants from taking over but the sad part is all the native plants as mentioned take a hit. When you see a boat spraying herbicide with sprayers the size of what a fire truck would use you know this will kill all plants including the native plants needed to help the lake and fishery. When carp was introduced the first and second time in such large numbers I was seeing them eat reeds that were growing along the shore and swimming off with the pieces like celery in their mouth, the carp had no more hydrilla and ate all the native plants and to this day much of the shores are still empty of healthy plant growth. As stated in the article I do hope the future introduction of carp is in small numbers and we can begin to see Lake Conroe with a healthy plant population.
