Diawdown of Kaiick Lake in Walton County as a means of controlling unwanted aquatic plants, and as a fisheries management tool to improve fishing in the 50-acre lake near Baker in the Blackwater River State Forest "is coming along exceptionally well", it was stated by personnel of the Game and Fresh Water Fish (.'oinmi.ssion. The announcement was a joint statement made by liiologist .John Crew, in charge of Intensive management of Commission fish management areas in northwest Florida, and by C, Y. "Chuck" Williams, regional aquatic botantlst, both of whom are working on the lake improvement program. The lake is now down 13 feet below normal level, and is .scheduled to remain at this level until November 1 in order to continue sun and air of the lake bottom, and troublesome bladderwort roots, a major .source of plant infestation in the lake. Public fishing is continuing during the drawdown. Original plans July 5 were to lower the lake slightly over seven feet, but because of the extremely clear water in the lake it was determined that the bladderwort plant was established at a much greater depth than e-vpected. In order to effect better control of the plant, it WHS iwccssHvy to drop the water level lower than first .scheduled to expose the bladderwort roots, the two officials .said.
