Ozark, AL - Fishermen, rejoice. Ed Lisenby Lake in Ozark is finally open, after being closed for two years.
The 92-acre lake quickly filled up this morning when the park opened at 5:30.
It was closed when it became overcrowded with undesirable fish.
Now leaders say the population is balanced with bluegill, shellcracker, and bass fish.
Visitors are happy to be back on the water.
“It was nice. I caught about 40 brims and a 13 inch bass. I’ll be out here about every chance I get when I’m not at work. I’ve been waiting for a long time for this to open back up,” said Christopher Perry, Enterprise.
The lake also features a new dock at the boat ramp and a renovated pier.
