John Hay Lake: FISH KILL:

There were dead blue gill, crappie and red ear every where. The ones that you could see swimming around looked sick. they had patches of scales missing and would not dart away like normal. The fish kill on John Hay has been attributed to the fish being stressed from spawning and water temps warming. Our biologists advised that this makes them more susceptible to a fungus that is normally present in the water and the fungus is what is killing the fish. It is not believed to be caused by any chemicals due to the fact that that it is limited to certain species of fish. Also the lake has not been treated since last fall with any chemicals."

Thanks,
