Fish die-off reported at Sutherland Reservoir

LINCOLN, Neb. – A fish die-off occurred this week at Sutherland Reservoir State Recreation Area in southwest Nebraska.

White bass made up the majority of the approximately 1,500 dead fish documented Sept. 2 along the west shoreline. Other species observed in lower numbers were wiper, gizzard shard, yellow perch and common carp.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission collected a live white bass for testing to help determine stressors potentially related to the die-off. Game and Parks staff will continue to monitor the situation with additional mortality potential in the coming days.
