Applications being accepted to construct, operate new marina at Fishtrap Lake

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is looking for someone to build and operate a new marina at Pike County’s Fishtrap Lake.

The old marina was demolished earlier this year after it was deemed to be unsafe. Now the Corps is accepting applications from people and corporations to lease the 15-acre site, construct a new marina and operate it.

Applications will be judged on a competitive basis.

The Corps will host an open inspection of the site from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 7, with representatives on site to answer questions.

Applications describing the sites and giving details of the lease requirements can be requested until Oct. 14. To obtain a copy, write to:

The deadline to submit applications is Nov. 2.
