What Caused Thousands of Fish to Die in Lake Murvaul?
Lake Murvaul, just outside of Carthage, Texas, is one of my favorite lakes to fish. Especially in the hot summer months, this relatively small impoundment, consistently produces some extremely large bass, and scores of them. I especially love to fish here at night.
So the post I recently read on the Lake Murvaul Campground Marina & Restaurant Facebook page really caught my attention.
They wrote the following:
Dead fish on Lake Murvaul. I have received several messages and phone calls about a lot of dead fish (catfish) floating in Lake Murvaul. I just called our Texas Parks and Wildlife representatives in Marshall Texas. He had 2 biologists out on Murvaul today trying to figure something out. Found some alive but struggling. They were able to secure them and they were sent in to the lab for testing. I will keep you updated as we receive information.
