In October of 2007, a two-day fish population survey was conducted on four Reston Association lakes by Aquatic Environment Consultants, Inc. The lakes included in the survey were Lake Newport, Lake Anne, Lake Thoreau and Lake Audubon. The purpose of the survey was to collect data on the fish population of each lake, identify any problems and formulate a fisheries management plan for each lake. Data that related to water quality and the fish population was collected.
Each of the four lakes has an established fish population that has reached the carrying capacity for the water body. Our goal is to improve the largemouth bass population and populations of other desirable species in the lake. Improvements are to be made in the growth rates, sizes, numbers and reproductive potential of each species.
