The Fish Habitat Improvement Day at Lake Shelbyville is coming up Saturday. Volunteers are being sought as habitat cubes will be put in the lake for the wildlife on that day.
Mike Mounce is a Fisheries Biologist with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. He appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville studios and says there is a much bigger goal in mind.
Mounce says it is important to protect the fish in the lake for more than just the fish.
Mounce says one organization recently rated Lake Shelbyville as one of the top places in the nation to go to for croppy fish.
