    Just an F.Y.I. to everyone, the N.G.P.C. has announced a fish kill at Memphis lake, east of Ashland. Unfortunatly, i didn't get word of said release until i'd already been on the water, and counted couple of dozen dead gill, Game and Parks said the kill was due to the storm that hit the area sunday night, ripping lots of the vegitation in the lake away, and causing a decline in oxegen levels, killing the fish. while I was there this evening i sadly saw 5 dead cats, 3 of wich were over 22". G&P also said that the event shouldnt have a major impact on Memphis. I sure hope it won't.
