Ottawa club enhances Mississippi Lake

For the second year in a row, members of the Ottawa Valley South Bass Masters spent a day creating fish habitat for juvenile bass in Mississippi Lake near Carltonplace, Ontario.

The group submerged cedar trees using rope and concrete blocks, situating the structures throughout the lake in areas identified as likely holding places for young bass. The additional cover will provide shelter for juvenile bass from predators such as Northern pike and walleye, likely providing an increased number of adult bass in the future.
