BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — The Indiana Department of Natural Resources has delivered 22,000 bass to a Bloomington lake that is being replenished after it was drained in 2012 for dam repairs.

DNR fisheries biologist David Kittaka tells The Herald-Times the bass delivered to the city-owned Griffy Lake last week is the first of several shipments due this spring from state fish hatcheries. Other fish that will be part of the restocking are about 82,000 bluegill, 27,000 redear and 22,000 crappie.

The lake on Bloomington’s north side was drained to make repairs to the dam and dredge silt from the lake bed. The work cost $1.4 million and was financed by a state grant.
