Fishhawk Lake Dredging “I think I can! I think I can!”

This little dredge always makes me think of The Little Engine That Could, the motivational children’s book. We have had it forever here at Fishhawk Lake, it keeps on pluggin’ along and other than it scaring my pup, Kasa

(she never likes inanimate objects and barks like crazy) it does what it’s supposed to throughout the seasons at Fishhawk Lake.

Dredge Operator for Fishhawk Lake

This little guy dredges the silt that collects through the seasons at Fishhawk Lake and through a large piping system takes it to dry land into spoils ponds or other designated areas, which later can be used by others in the community. There are giant floating balls sitting on the surface of the lake to show boaters where the pipe is located just under the surface so that they don’t boat over it by mistake.

The dredge moves around throughout the year and there are areas of Fishhawk Lake that are too deep for it to reach, so they don’t get dredged. Right now, he’s in front of my home, thus the photo op!

The dredge operator for Fishhawk Lake is Bob Clark , a gentle-man and a local who comes out early in the AM and works usually about 6 hours per day several times a week.

When I’m walking the dogs in the morning, we often see each other and he always wishes me a good day in a cheery voice—and he really means it.
