Federal and state officials will use an experimental fishing method next month at Kentucky Lake in an attempt to reduce the infestation of Asian carp.

The three-week joint effort by federal and state Fish And Wildlife officials and the Tennessee Valley Authority will begin on Monday.

The fishing method is inspired by a traditional Chinese fishing technique. It involves setting a series of nets, underwater speakers and electrofishing gear to corral the carp.
