With regard to the March 22 article, “Carp Control Weeds” in the Roane County News, I offer the following observations on its contents:
Claytor Lake in Virginia is 4,500 acres and approximately 21 miles long with an area of 7.031 square miles.
The Claytor Lake group spent between $12,000 and $15,000 per year for two years and stocked about 10,000 carp in total.
Watts Bar Lake is 39,000 acres, approximately 73 miles long with an area of 61.08 square miles. It has 722 miles of shoreline.
