Giant salvinia is showing up in Lake Fork once more. Staff from SRA and TPWD confirmed the presence of giant salvinia in White Oak Bay and at Fisherman’s Cove Marina in Williams Creek. Other sightings were reported in Naconiche


TPWD installed a containment boom across White Oak and sprayed herbicide in the back of White Oak and at Fisherman’s Cove. Anglers are asked to be on the lookout for this menace and to report additional sightings to TPWD and SRA.


Inland Fisheries Tyler North District of TPWD said they will be doing some spraying after Thanksgiving and then re-assess the issue in winter/spring to decide if they need to hire a contractor next year.


Inland Fisheries says that a person can get a permit to treat the salvinia themselves. Check SRA for the necessary forms.


Don’t be a part of the problem. Remember to Clean, Drain, and Dry your boat to prevent transporting these invaders.
