While it appears to be another beautiful spring day from the shore, it's clear there's something fishing going on once you get out on the water.
Jacki Sharbono and Dan Daffenbauch have lived on the lake for 11 years, and they said they've never seen this many dead fish tangled up in all the weeds. They believe the weeds -- which often clog up motors -- are also choking off the fish.
FOX 9 News spoke with the Department of Natural Resources and found that a few things are at work here. First, the water got warm really quickly, which is tough on fish -- but there is also a bacteria called flexibacter columnaris that can bombard fish species.
The DNR says there's no danger in the area, and said that the fish caught on the lake are fine to eat as long as they are cooked thoroughly.
Despite the large number of dead fish, the DNR said the fish populations in the lake are probably fine. They estimate the kill will end in about a week.
