Makes you wonder how they survive in the Trinity River from Ft Worth to Liberty Texas too. And in the other lakes below.
Infested Lakes - Fifteen Texas lakes in five river basins can be classified as fully infested with zebra mussels, meaning the water body has an established, reproducing population: Austin, Belton, Bridgeport, Canyon, Dean Gilbert (a 45-acre Community Fishing Lake in Sherman), Eagle Mountain, Georgetown, Lady Bird, Lewisville, Livingston, Randell (local Denison access only), Ray Roberts, Stillhouse Hollow, Texoma, and Travis.
There are also lakes that are "positive" and there are lakes that are "suspect" and lakes that are "inconclusive".
State regulations require draining of water from boats and onboard receptacles when leaving or approaching public fresh waters.
From the TPW website: Zebra mussels start as microscopic larvae and grow to only 1.5 inches long. They can spread across Texas by hitching a ride on your boat, trailer or gear. Do your part to protect Texas lakes. Always clean, drain and dry your boat. It's the law -- fines up to $500. Yet the CWA/Corp of Engineers/City of Houston are allowed to introduce them into Lake Houston.
I would rather fish than eat and I stay hungry all the time
REGARDLESS OF HOW MANLY YOU THINK YOU ARE WEARING A PFD CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE....
