Summary/Recommendations/Objectives:

This report presents the results of the fisheries and
limnological studies conducted on West Point Lake from May 1983 through
December 1984 with some unreported data covering previous report
periods. Overall study objectives continue to be: 1) documenting
changes in the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of West
Point Lake with emphasis on detection of those factors contributing to
the expected decline in sport fishing success, and 2) implementing and
evaluating fishery management practices aimed at improving the catch per
effort (CPE) of sport fishermen.
