Norris Lake - Electrofishing 2016

Norris Electrofishing Video

Targeted smallmouth sampling was performed on Norris during the spring of 2016 in response to informational needs in regards to the relatively recent regulation change. Standardized electrofishing for largemouth and other species was not performed in order to obtain the best smallmouth data possible.
