Hundreds of dead fish wash ashore in Lake Independence


Boaters flocking to one west-metro lake on the busy holiday weekend found hundreds of dead pan fish washing ashore.

An estimated 500 to 1,000 dead crappies were reported at the boat access on Lake Independence in Maple Plain over the long Memorial Day weekend.

And while fisheries experts from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will investigate the issue on Tuesday, DNR leaders say boaters shouldn’t be alarmed.
