Northern Pike Fish Kill Ready to Go


www.news10.net

Nearly 400 workers from the California Department of Fish and Game were in Plumas County Monday, preparing for the largest manmade fish kill in this state in a decade.

"We've been basically working for this day for the past two years and we're ready to go," said spokesman Steve Martarano.

Where's PETA on this one?

The poison being used in this California lake kills all gill breathing fish. This lake is also a reservoir for local dirinking water.

They say this poisoning of the lake will not affect other animals or the drinking water, they are also going to replenish the prized trout supply but I wonder if this is the way to get this done.

They haved already failed in getting rid of the Pike in 1997 by poisoning.

Having been an avid pike fisherman, I am sure there are many out there who have enjoyed a few fish frys with the delicious fish.

Poisoning a reservoir for local drinking water because you don't like the kind of fish in the lake?

That's insane!!!

I agree Gools, they should let fishermen who crave the northern pike to fish that place out for free, and release their prized trout back into the lake, it doesn't make any sense to kill all the fish with poison.

Anyway here is some info on the poison used in this fishkill:

I've had Northern Pike for a fish fry and it was very tasty! Why would they want to kill them? They're fun to catch too!
