Initial Lake Independence shoreline assessment yields no zebra mussels


Three Rivers Park performed their pre-treatment zebra mussel assessment of Lake Independence last Friday. They had two divers who focused initially on the area in the vicinity of the Baker boat access but also spent considerable amount of time in other areas of the lake, including the point where one adult zebra mussel was found last fall. We are happy to announce they did not find any zebra mussels outside of the original infested area by the boat launch. Click here for more details.

Baker Park launch site to close for ten days


The Lake Independence boat access in Baker Park Reserve has been tentatively scheduled for closure at 8 a.m. on Monday, April 27. The access will be closed for about ten days as the area is treated for zebra mussels. The access will be re-opened no later than Friday, May 8 in time for the opening of the general fishing season..
