Water quality fight begins on False River
NEW ROADS - Crews will begin a fight Wednesday to upgrade the water quality of the habitat of False River.
Spawning beds are being installed as part of a larger effort to improve the popular body of water. Nine go up this week.
Parish leaders say they hope the beds will attract fish and increase the number of fishermen since they have dwindled in the past thirty years.
