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.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
