Gelatt Lake 7/14/21

By Gelatt, Laramie Plains Lakes, Wyoming

Some info from the game and fish biologist about the fish kill this past weekend. Recent Gelatt Lake fish kill event: On Friday July 9th anglers at Gelatt Lake were catching fish. But by the morning of July 10th, hundreds of trout were lost due to low oxygen conditions. In addition, thousands of dead Fathead Minnows were observed. Oxygen most likely fell to lethal levels during the night due to plant respiration. While a good proportion of fish died from a lack of oxygen, it was not a total fish kill. There have been reports of fish still being caught since the event. Aerators were in operation and might have provided a zone of better oxygenated water for some fish to survive.

Twin Buttes 3-30-21

Twin Buttes opened up significantly yesterday in the wind. About 65% of the lake is now open including the boat ramp. There is still ice in the first bay and on the East end of the lake by the first outhouse. It was open water from the West end all the way past the boat ramp and all along the North shore.
