Pond/Lake Barley for Algae...

3 posts in this topic

One of the local print/online papers has an article about clearing up algae with barley straw. Decomposition attracts microbes yadda yadda, phosphorus is removed. Anyone out there seen this or know about it?

I would think the decomposition of the straw would take Oxygen out of the water affecting the fish (not that the algae is any good either)

Decomposition does decrease oxygen levels. Many lake owners are more concerned about "aesthetic" issues than environmental.

Good luck.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.
