Glynn Harris talks with Jeff Sibley about Lake Claiborne

Outdoorsman, columnist and radio talk show host Glynn Harris spoke with Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Inland Fisheries Manager of District 1 Jeff Sibley earlier this week.

Harris reminised on his time living in Homer approximately 50 years ago, when the beautiful Lake Claiborne was built and the waters first trickled over the spillway.

Lake Claiborne has transformed and changed since its birth and is now a popular destination for swimming, boating, camping, hiking and most of all – fishing.

The lake is stocked with a wide array of fish species including largemouth bass, bluegill sunfish, channel catfish, black crappie, striped bass, chain pickerel, bream, white perch and more recently F1 Tiger Bass and Florida Bass.

To enhance the natural habitat of the lake and provide a higher sucess rate to the introduction of these new fish, 32 artificial fish attracting reefs were added to Lake Claiborne last month.

Listen in to see what Glynn and Jeff had to say about this initiative.
