What: 
In partnership with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Inland Fisheries Division (TPWD), Major League Fishing pros from the Bass Pro Tour and volunteers will assemble artificial bass habitat – made of recycled PVC habitat products provided by MossBack Fish Habitat – and use Kubota Tractor Corporation’s (KTC) B3350HSD to deploy four Bass Recovery Zone artificial habitat reefs into Sam Rayburn Reservoir outside of the Umphrey Family Pavilion. 

When:
Tuesday, Jan. 30, from 9-11 a.m. CT

Where:
Umphrey Family Pavilion, 5438 Sam Rayburn Parkway, Brookeland, Texas

Notes: 
The mission of the MLF Fisheries Management Division (FMD) is to improve the quality of life for bass through research, education, fisheries enhancement and fish care. Minn Kota has extended its Habitat Restoration Projects into the third year with the MLF FMD as habitat restoration continues to be a major priority of fishery agencies across the country.

Sam Rayburn Reservoir and the Umphrey Family Pavilion is home to numerous bass fishing tournaments each year, and creating artificial habitat reefs outside of the park is essential to sustaining a thriving trophy-bass fishery.  The products used in this project were selected specifically for their durability and long-term effectiveness as well as their sustainable manufacturing. 

For more than 50 years, KTC’s iconic orange equipment has been at work in every rural landscape, suburban neighborhood and urban cityscape across America. The Sam Rayburn Reservoir project exemplifies the pride Kubota takes in having its equipment play an important role in building, maintaining and enhancing our communities. 

The TPWD state-of-the-art habitat deployment barge will be onsite to aide in the precise placement of assembled habitat. MLF FMD director Steven Bardin will be joining MLF pros to volunteer, along with KTC employees who will be volunteering both their time and equipment for the restoration project.
