LAKE MILLS, Iowa - A north Iowa lake is getting a bit of a makeover.
The Iowa DNR began work on Rice Lake this morning. They will be lowering the lake a few feet in order to change the fish population
Lowering it will replicate drought conditions from the late 1980s, which is a good thing so they can improve the lake's water quality.
"Currently the lake is about 90% bullheads we hope to get that at more of a better balance with a lot more sport fish and we're excited to have the community support," says DNR Wildlife Biologist, T.J. Herrick.
And that community support will help make a cleaner Rice Lake.
"What we're after is to return Rice Lake to a high quality natural lake. If we do that, we believe it will have a positive wildlife and fisheries response," adds Herrick.
The DNR plans to renovate fisheries next fall and hope the lake is back to being fully functional by fall of 2014.
