DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) _ Iowa officials will be releasing water from Lost Grove Lake near Davenport so work can be finished on one of three boat ramps.
The Quad-City Times reports (http://bit.ly/177hVL3) that anglers won't welcome the news, as they're eager to fish the eastern Iowa lake already stocked with largemouth bass, channel catfish, bluegill and other species.
But the Iowa Department of Natural Resources says it has no choice, because it can't do the work underwater. The lake has filled up quicker than expected, so workers will open a dam gate just enough to slowly reduce the lake level and help prevent fish loss.
Construction on the main ramp should begin in mid to late June and is expected to last two months.
