Abstract

During the first week of April, 1946, the ice cover of Lake Poinsett, South Dakota began breaking up and many thousands of dead fish appeared on the surface of the water. This was the beginning of a spectacle never before witnessed in this territory. Strong April winds swept ice fragments and dead fish in to the lake shores within a few days there were from three to five tons of dead fish on every fifty feet of shore line and a like number of dead fish remained floating in the water nearby.
