DENVER, Colo (KKCO) At one lake in Delaware, up to 6,000 dead Gizzard Shad and 600 Perch were found floating this week. In South Carolina, some 500 fish died at Lake Hartwell. Across South Dakota, fishermen have reported thousands of fish kills in multiple lakes and rivers. In Tennessee, a fish kill on Butterfly Lake left a horrid stench in one Knoxville neighborhood.

    Thats nothing compared to the thousands of fish the USFWS kill right under our noses on the Colorado and Yampa Rivers. Maybe the news should inform people about that! Its amazing how many people do not know whats taking place. How about it News 11?

      Trout don't like lakes that get as warm as Highline yet the CPW continues to stock them. A bunch of wasteful morons!
