Gizzard shad survive winter at Royer Lake

Royer Lake

ROYER LAKE - The harsh weather this past winter wasn’t enough to rid Royer Lake of its gizzard shad population.

The silver colored forage fish turned up abundantly during a sampling for largemouth bass earlier this month according to Department of Natural Resources District Biologist Neil Ledet.

Hundreds of nine to ten inch gizzard shad were present even though the fish is sensitive to cold temperatures that killed off many during the winter.

Ledet says they’ll do a complete fish survey at Royer during June which will better assess how many shad are still there.

The shad are considered a nuisance because they compete with popular sport fish and negatively impact water clarity.

Ledet hopes the bass population of the 69-acre LaGrange County lake can keep the shad in check.
