Fish Kill

Post By: not too old to fish      Posted: 10/12/2017 10:33:21 AM     Points: 3723    
I talked to a couple of people at Centennial Park yesterday and they both talked about a fish kill about 3 weeks ago. Anyone have any knowledge of what happened? I did see some carp moving around so there is still some fish left.

About 1.5 weeks ago I was there and there were signs up that fishing is closed. Talked to some dude that talked to a ranger, told him they messed up the fertilizer for the grass(too much) and then it rained. Bunch of dead trout, bass, walleye. I caught nothing in normally good areas.... Not sure who is to blame here but it sounds like some company should be paying to restock the lake....

I saw the sign a few weeks ago also saw a dead bass and carp water looked dirty brown hopefully it wasn’t a total fish kill

Basschaser, it appears you answered a question that wasn't asked, did I miss something. Good information but I don't think it applies here.

That would explain why I didn't see any fish activity a few weeks ago. Sad really, that was a nice park to get the family out and fish. (not MY family, but families.)

Yea, the money from our fishing license will, they dont care that they ruined the lake. Sad and it's true. Never fished it so I'm not too sad, but it sucks to hear when a fishery gets ruined by something you could have prevented.

Fish kill or Fish Kill springs from the Dutch term Vis Kill, which means "creek full offish".
