Thousands of Fish Killed in Ravenna Lake, Nebraska


“RAVENNA — Additional investigation has shown the number of fish killed at Ravenna Lake recently was much greater than previously documented.

A second investigation conducted March 16, when all the ice was off the lake, showed about 3,800 dead fish, including about 450 largemouth bass, 3,100 bluegills and 200 channel catfish, according to a press release from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission’s Kearney office.

The previous investigation March 4 had counted only 250 dead fish.

Most of the bass were 10 to 20 inches long. The bluegills were 8 to 10 inches and the catfish were 20 to 28 inches. The increase in dead fish indicates nearly a complete kill of the fish population in Ravenna Lake, the release said.”  Source.
