Lake Chicot drawdown
A public meeting is being held at the Simmons Bank in Lake Village, AR tomorrow January 15 at 7 p.m. We will present the plans for the 2019 Lake Chicot drawdown. The lake will be drawn down 6 feet beginning Monday July 8th. It is expected to take six weeks. Gates will be closed until January 1, 2020. During this time creel limits will be cut in half. The drawdown concentrates prey and predator species, allowing both to have a good spawn the following spring. It also allows property owners to make dock repairs or build new docks.
