The Army Corps of Engineers' Russellville Project Office ranger staff will be assembling and placing fish attractors on both Dardanelle and Ozark lakes.
After the fish attractors are placed GPS coordinates will be taken and posted on the Project's website for those wishing to fish them. Fish attractors create spawning areas for fish and cover for small fry, which increases survival rates and leads to better fishing.
Drop locations on Lake Dardanelle include Dwight Mission Boat Ramp and Spadra Park's east boat ramp. Drop locations on Ozark Lake include White Oak and Vine Prairie boat ramps. Local businesses with leftover trees that did not sell for Christmas are welcome to drop off their trees as well. Only live trees, not artificial ones, will be used to make the fish attractors. Be sure to remove all tinsel and ornaments as it is not biodegradable. Trees will be accepted until Jan. 15.
