Coastal Bassmasters rebuilding Duck Lake

OCEAN SHORES, Wash. — Coastal Bassmasters began a projec to rebuild the bass fishery at Duck Lake.

"We have started working in the political arena between state and city government," said Eric Roos. "Duck Lake is a man-made reservoir owned by the resort city of Ocean Shores. Both Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife and City of Ocean Shores permits are required and applied for.

"Our goal will be to work together with state and local agencies and other bass clubs to restore a once great largemouth fishery," added Roos.

So far, 10 volunteers have helped with the project.
