LDWF patches dam break affecting La. lakes
NEW ORLEANS - State fisheries workers patched a low dam meant to keep water high and fish well-stocked in central Louisiana.
The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries said water levels in lakes Larto and Sabine will get higher once more rain comes through.
Inland fisheries director Mike Wood said the break in the dam was about 75 feet long and six feet deep, and nearly 2,000 tons of rock were needed in the job.
Wood says they're working on a more permanent solution for this summer.
