From a study of the reservoirs in southern Iowa, created by damming streams, it is apparent that aquatic vegetation should be introduced into the new artificial lakes to accelerate natural succession. As the areas are created for fishing lakes, a demand is made by the public to open them to fishing as soon as the fish have reached a takable population.
