Is the County involed with the "Friends of Ascarate Lake"?
lot of undersize fish being caught and not released at the lake....
When’s the next fish drop?
I have called over and over . Due to the fact that one of the duck is limping with a very bad infected foot . Hopefully you guys can check on your ducklings and give cares .
Why not consider opening the sidewalk gate and allowing walking and cycling around the park. No picnics, no use of fields, NO GROUPS, Social DISTANCING a must! But running, cycling walking fishing tend to be SOLO SPORTS anyway. Ascarte would be a wonderful pedestrian park if only for a little while. 👊😷👍🚴‍♂️ 🚴‍♀️ 🏃‍♀️ 🚴‍♂️ 🎣🤩
When I take my baby boy. I'm gonna make sure "hopefully ' I want that sunset picture with us both 🙃
Following a series of severe fish kills in 2001, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department formed a Golden Alga Task Force. Through 2010, the task force worked with scientists and stakeholders from the United States and other countries, exploring strategies to avoid, minimize, and mitigate the effects of golden alga. Despite significant efforts by TPWD and our international network of partners, golden alga bloom dynamics and toxin formation are still not well understood. Some treatments have proved effective for ponds and small reservoirs, but to date there is no feasible way to control golden alga in large reservoirs and rivers. Read more about golden alga research and management. Take Action Report Kills - If you see a fish kill or suspect golden alga, contact TPWD's 24-hour communications centers at 512-389-4848 (Austin). Get the Facts - TPWD has collaborated with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and other entities to produce a golden alga information card. Download a PDF from the TCEQ website or request a free hard copy from TPWD at [email protected].
