Dead fish everywhere. Golden Algae taking its toll again.

It was localized a month ago. I’m assuming it has now began to spread? Were the dead fish all over the lake?

It definetley started in the river, now they are floating in the main lake. Looked like it might stay in the river, but it now appears to be wide spread. I started seeing floaters and foam around Thanksgiving in the river.

Still ice on the lake behind the house, was hoping it had gotten to cold for the algae, apparently not. Shad, carp and bass seem to be the hardest hit.

Actually you want the water to warm to stop a golden algae bloom. It thrives in cold water. I know it sounds like the opposite when you think of algae, but when the water warms to around 70 degrees or so the bloom will stop. Don't quote me on the actual number, but it's somewhere around 70. Unfortunately several of the lakes around me have been hit hard with golden algae throughout the years and it's a bad situation.

Fully aware golden algae is a cool water algae. There is a range it thrives in, I too am not sure what the top and bottom temps are. Its not going to be getting hot enough in December and January so was hoping it would just get cold enough to stop it.

I'm sure this has been talked about before, but is not anything that can be done to control the spread of, or just kill it all together. I hate to hear that about Spence. It was getting pretty good.

My last two trips have resulted in 2 bites and 1 fish. I usually catch at least 20 a trip with several between 5 & 9. It has really turned the fish off. Not sure how long of a trip you have, but it's probably not worth the drive right now. I live on the lake and it isn't worth me walking down to cast a line.

It won't be a total kill based on what I see currently, but right now the lake is struggling.

That sucks! Thanksgiving week was the last time I was out there and it was abnormally tough for Spence. Guess that could have had something to do with it. Lake would have really been something special come spawn. Keeping my fingers crossed the damage is minimal.

I was out there in early December, I seen a couple 6 pounders dead out there. I hope it won’t be too bad, I had a blast out there this year.

People will have to go fish an actual lake now. Those poor fish were so tired of being thrown in the livewell and having pictures taken of them all the time. If the golden algae didn’t get them, all the Tuesday Facebook picture takers would. Throwing 5 four pounders in the livewell to take an “epic” profile picture.
