Willow Lake Renovation
Willow Lake is a nearly 400 acre lake in Nebraska's Brown County sandhills. It has been known as a great little bass, crappie and perch fishery. A higher water cycle in the mid 1990's connected it to some neighboring chain lakes which in turn connected up with the Calamus River. This allowed Calamus carp to move up to and invade Willow Lake, negatively impacting the fishery. September 10, 2013, Game and Parks eliminated the carp with rotenone as the first step to restoring Willow Lake to what it once was as a fishery.
