The Chamberlains are also avid outdoor sports' people and promote the local Minn-Kota Bowhunters The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources released 31,000 yearling catfish into Big Stone Lake last week. Jeff Malzahn, fisheries technician with the DNR, stated that the project, which began last Tuesday and was completed Thursday, will help to improve the catfish population in Big Stone Lake for years to come. The yearling fish, measuring only 5-6" in size, were hatched in Waterfield and then transported to a State Fish Hatchery in New London. This is the third such stocking of catfish on Big Stone Lake, and Malzahn says that which range from which anglers are from a stocking done 1980's. The catfish were oxygenated tanks and at five separate around the lake. of stocking to distributed evenl He also stated the young fish will the other species in and should make a wide variety of anglers Area fish kills re Artichoke and Big Stone Lakes experienced partial fish kills during the week of July 13th. Both kills were very limited and are not expected to have any noticeable affect on fishing quality at either lake. On Artichoke Lake, approximately 25 walleyes, 20 northern pike, one , and 20 orange spotted sunfish were found dead along the shoreline, primarily in the southern 3/4 mile of the lake. On Big Stone Lake, dead freshwater drum (sheepshead) were noted at various locations. DNR Fisheries personnel who investigated the fish kills believe they resulted because of low oxygen levels, a con- dition termed summer-kill. Summer-kill occurs in a lake when organisms use oxygen faster than it can be replenished. Bacteria, zoo- plankton, insects, crayfish, clams, snaiiL fish, and even plants, all use oxygen. Oxygen is produced in a lake by plants, especially algae, during the daytime. Oxygen also diffuses into a lake from the air. When large blooms of algae die and decompose, a tremendous amount of oxygen is used by bacteria. In addi- tion, if several hot, calm days occur, mixing of oxygen into a lake by wave action doesn't occur. Hot weather also increases the rate at which bacteria and other organisms use oxygen. The combination of rapidly lower especially at night sis doesn't occur produced. As oxygen levels, organisms oxygen demands freshwater drum in addition, individuals to environmental die.
