Went fishing today behind the dam at PK and saw tons (100) of dead striper (18-30") on the shore. I also saw a bunch swimming around aimlessly. It looked like they were all sick. A few I noticed what looked like lesions all over their body. Has anyone else seen this before? Should I contact TP&W?
My freind reported seeing a few dozen 3 weeks ago. We had assumed as hot as it was that weekend and all the people out fishing right below the dam they were succumbing to stress of being caught. We had recently heard podcast about Stripers being particularly sensitive to the stress of being caught in high temps and I think the temp was unseasonably warm that weekend.
