MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) – State officials say the Warix Run Boat Ramp at Cave Run Lake near Morehead is closing temporarily next week.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife said in a news release that the boat ramp will serve as a staging area for a fish habitat improvement project. Artificial habitat structures will be installed in the waters at Warix Run and nearby coves.
The ramp is scheduled to be closed July 25 through 29.
Department Fisheries Habitat Coordinator Joseph Zimmerman says this is the third year for the habitat project. It’s expected to be completed next year.
The release said Kentucky Fish and Wildlife, the Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Forest Service and several Cave Run Lake angling groups are working together to improve the habitat.
