The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) recently stocked an additional 200,000 bluegill, 10,000 channel catfish, and 100,000 redear sunfish into Mississippi’s Lake Lamar Bruce.
Previous stockings included bluegill, redear sunfish, Florida largemouth bass, channel catfish, golden shiners, grass carp, and magnolia crappie.
“The double stocking of Bluegill and Redear Sunfish is a proactive management approach that we are using to delay the largemouth bass population from overcrowding,” stated MDWFP Fisheries Biologist Tyler Stubbs.
Lake Lamar Bruce, near Saltillo, is still under renovation and closed to the public. The lake is expected to open in 2015.
