Lake Independence sees spring crappie die off


A large number of dead crappies have been seen floating or washed ashore around the lake. LICA has reported this to the Minnesota DNR and we expect to hear back shortly with more information or next steps. Information on crappie spring die-off is available on the MN DNR website and is commonly caused by Columnaris disease which is a natural occurrence and only affects a small percentage of the fish in the lake. There is no known cure, but is believed to have little effect on the long-term health of the fish population. LICA will send out updates to members as we receive them.
