A crew of chain-saw toting workers didn't exactly eliminate the chunk of overgrown forest: They simply relocated it. Thick groves of cedar trees at two areas of the Beaver Lake shoreline were thinned and the cut trees now rest on the lake bottom as a forest of fish habitat. The two-week project by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission was one of the most intensive fish habitat enhancement projects ever at the lake, said area fisheries biologist Jon Stein with the commission. Work took place in late November and early December. Hundreds of cedar trees were cut from Shaddox Island, a 100-acre island north of Rocky Branch park, and submerged in that area. Hundreds more cedars were cut from Bear Island and Deer Island, which are north of the Arkansas 12 bridge. They were sunk in the Prairie Creek area. Around 900 cedars, small to medium in size, were submerged. Workers lashed trees together in bundles and weighted them with concrete blocks. Bundles were transported to sinking sites by barges built specifically for this type of work. The trees provide shelter for bait fish, such as threadfin shad, which most game fish eat. Game fish, especially crappie and black bass, gather around the trees to pick off an easy meal, Stein explained. Anglers benefit from the good fishing that can be enjoyed around the submerged trees, he said.

Some were sunk not far from shore at the Arkansas 12 bridge access where anglers fishing from shore can reach them. Trees now rest at an average of 15 to 30 feet deep. The longer the trees are under water, the more effective they become at attracting fish, Stein explained. Phytoplankton, a type of moss, grows on the branches. Threadfin shad feed on the phytoplankton, and that, in turn, brings in more black bass, crappie, catfish and other species that like to hang around wood cover. Similar habitat work has taken place at Beaver before, but on a smaller scale. This project involved 28 Game and Fish employees from across the state. Game and Fish conducts two of these major habitat projects each year, Stein said. One took place at Lake Monticello during the summer of 2021. Game and Fish will decide soon on two lakes for this year.
