Dead fish found along shores in South Dakota

Posted: Updated:

People across the area are reporting dead fish along shores at Lake Norden in South Dakota and along the border of the Dakotas.

Jon Boomgarden says the heat is causing fish to be washed on shores at Lake John around Lake Norden. He said it happened in just two days and the lake is loosing large sizes of Walleye, Northern Pike and Perch.

Jan Siemucha lives in Hecla and says a combination of heat and low water levels are causing mass deaths of the fish population along the North Dakota-South Dakota Stateline. Siemucha says most of the fish are Walleye and Northern Pike as well. She says hopefully water can be released up stream to help alleviate the problem.
