Anglers can make use of old Christmas trees

Christmas trees are available at selected Army Corps of Engineers boat ramps for use by Thurmond Lake anglers who wish to establish artificial reefs that attract and hold baitfish and gamefish.

Ken Boyd, the reservoir's conservation biologist, said more than 2,500 trees were collected at the Riverside Middle School site in Columbia County last week and will be distributed to the following ramps, where anglers can pick them up and place them in desired locations:

Georgia: Amity, Gill Point, Big Hart and Soap Creek.

South Carolina: U.S. Forest Service ramp at Long Cane Creek, Mount Carlem, Scott's Ferry, Dordan Creek and Leroy's Ferry.

The corps also will use a contractor to refurbish four artificial fishing reefs at the lake with remaining trees.
