SULLIVAN, Ill. (WCIA) — Lake Shelbyville is home to hundreds of species of fish. Fishermen in Our Town hope to see it stay stocked.

One way they’re working to do that is by building homemade fish habitats. Chip Christensen has been organizing efforts, using PVC pipes to build different styles to put in the lake.

The goal is to give the fish a place to live and grow. Supplies were donated by Ace Hardware. Christensen and others are working with the Army Corps of Engineers on the project as well.
