A year ago today on a small state stocked trout stream I fish close to home, I was standing on the bank fishing. This part of the stream belonged to a friend of mine. I had helped him build his house that last winter. I knew everybody upstream and most of the neighbors close to the stream. I had caught a couple of rainbows. A dead trout floated by me. I looked upstream and I could see several more, a few chubs and a sunfish tits up. A fish kill was occurring. I knew the folks downstream. One an individual I have known for years. He used to let the DNR stock his streams for public fishing, until his wife had a numbnuts pull a gun on her when she asked him to see his license. He called the DNR and had that stream closed immediately. He continued to stock his stream privately and had some of the most beautiful fish a man could want to catch. Further downstream, 1 and a half miles, was another friend who lets me fish. This part of the stream has washdown trout from the public portion. They go wild, turn yellowbelly and are some of the finest trout a guy could catch. I am the only one that fishes this. The kill was serious. I knew, from the stream conditions where it was coming from. A dairy farmer had a dike break on a lagoon he had and it poured manure (pure nitrogen) in the creek. What do ya do? I did nothing. It was too late. If I reported it that man would have lost his entire life and his kids life, his farm, equipment and livestock, paid a fine, and Govt. smelly rearends hanging around for years. What would you have done?
