INDIANAPOLIS - State wildlife officials say Indiana's late winter thaw and chilly spring has stymied the growth of aquatic plants that create headaches for boaters by clogging up lakes.
The state Department of Natural Resources says the lingering cool weather has slowed the growth of water plants in northeastern Indiana's lake district.
The DNR says the chill might delay or even reduce the amount of chemical herbicides needed this year to control vegetation in some lakes where the plants are a problem.
The agency says residents at more than 125 northeastern Indiana lakes hire commercial herbicide applicators each year to spray aquatic weeds that are interfering with boating and swimming.
DNR fisheries biologist Jed Pearson says the amount of weed control done each year "has a lot to do with the weather."
