Zebra Mussels Have Been Discovered in Chase State Fishing Lake.    

Chase SFL is an ANS designated water. Read the news release HERE.

 Zebra mussel veligers (larval zebra mussels) are too small to be seen with the unaided eye and they can be found in boat livewells, minnow buckets, boat bilges, and anything else that is capable of holding even a small amount of water.

 Be sure to drain all equipment before leaving the lake to avoid moving veligers to other waters. THIS INCLUDES MINNOW BUCKETS AND BOAT LIVEWELLS AND BILGES!!!

 CLEAN DRAIN & DRY Every Lake, Every Time!

General Comments

Attention Boaters:

Use caution launching boats as the boat ramp continues to suffer from low water. Larger boats with longer trailers requiring deeper water may have difficulty launching with current low water conditions.
