Please Report Fish Kills as the Heavy Ice Recedes.

Please e-mail me at waynewnri@yahoo.com as they are discovered after the heavy ice recedes.

This could be very valuable information for setting future creel limits by the Dem information public hearings which I attend and for a closer look at dam control water levels at each man made pond which is 99% of everything in New England. Some years new gate keeper volunteers have to learn the proper water levels to maintain.  P.S. Also if you discover any large Whitetail Deer or Wild Turkey kills also.
