1600+ dead cats near Grand Forks

6 posts in this topic

Heard on the news today they found over 1600 dead chanel cats on the banks of the REd River south of GF. Some disease the think?

I heard that it had to do with water temp.

NOT water temp.

sounded like a bacterial infection or something along the lines of that. Guess we'll have to wait and see what the path lab finds...

Glad to see the DNR boys are on top of it this time. There was a pretty large die off last summer as well, about mid July or so. From Grand Forks south to the Thompson Bridge, dead cats everywhere. Most folks automatically assumed that was low water level, high water temp, oxygen related but I question that now. There were sick cats and there were healthy cats as well.

I want to ask what's getting dumped into the water upstream?

Maybe that was earlier, but I did hear that a lot of cats died this year from hot temps in the water.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
