The Dnieper-Bragin Water Reservoir is located in Loyev District, Gomel Oblast. The reservoir had dried up and overgrown with shrubs due to the rising temperatures in Gomel Oblast. The reservoir was restored in 2019 and stocked with fish in 2021. Some 1,800 pikes were released into the reservoir. The stocking will continue in the spring when other fish species will be released.
