We saw a ton of them floating Saturday. Based on what others who were out there told me they saw there were thousands all over the lake, north to south.

Looks to be crappie, perch, bass and sandies in the picture from the article.

Mostly sand bass but I saw a lot of largemouth as well. Saw a few catfish, bream and crappie. It ain't good whatever is going on.

Must have just happened. Was there for 4 days weekend before last and didn’t see any dead fish.
North of the Marina they had the baracads up for Great Sullvania. Wounded if that had anything to do with it.

And it's more like thousands than dozens.

If it's mostly white bass that's not a bad thing. Those things eat tons of bass fry and fingerlings

I was fishing in Highsaw once and saw some soapy water running into the lake from a pipe that went up to a house. Looked like someone's washing machine draining into the lake. Seen the same thing at Tawakoni once. Appears something in the water caused this too.

I remember seeing the same thing in Cooper 15 or so years ago. Let's hope fishing at Palestine doesn't go the way of Cooper. Something is obviously going on there to make all those fish die.

You're in luck. Those nasty things are thick still.

Several years ago maybe longer than that... Same thing happened As I remember it is a natural happening occurrence When the cold water is trapped by the sudden warm up the fish are caught in the 'Thermocline" of oxygen deprived water. This may not be what happened but It is a better explanation than one 'washing machine water'

This was one of the pictures that was in the post of the OP Bill which made me think of the soapy water I saw. In a couple of the other pictures you can see a substance floating on the water. It was just a thought not a cause of the situation.
