Small fish kill in southeast Lyon County
Posted: 08/18/2014

A report of dead fish in an unnamed tributary of the Rock River, from a concerned citizen in Lyon County, was investigated by the DNR August 16.

About 200 fish were killed in one area about five miles south and two miles west of Rock Rapids. The cause was likely related to aerial spraying.
