NORTH PLATTE, Neb. – East Sutherland Interstate 80 Lake was chemically renovated Sept. 15, 2021.
The rotenone treatment used at the lake was aimed to eliminate common carp and other undesirable fish species, which are detrimental to aquatic habitat, water quality and sport fish populations.
In preparation for the treatment, biologists salvaged game fish from the lake and relocated them to other lakes.
Restocking of yellow perch and adult smallmouth bass will occur in late September or October this year. Rock bass will be stocked in 2022.
