26 people recently attended a recreational fish pond management workshop hosted by the Winston County Natural Resources Council, the Winston County Extension Office and the Winston County Commission. The workshop was held at Jeanie Lake on Bill and Jeanie Snoddy's Loblolly Farm. Dr. Rusty Wright, Extension Specialist Aquaculture and Recreational Pond Management, presented the basics of pond management, and Andy Baril, Regional Extension Agent - Forestry, Wildlife and Natural Resources, gave a presentation about problem wildlife species in ponds. Dr. Wright also brought the Fisheries Department's electrofishing boat to sample the lake's fish population. Forester continuing education points and Professional Logger Manager continuing education points were available.
