      Does a winter kill lake benefit at all from the dead decaying fish to help jumpstart a fishery from a nutrient perspective?

      What's the difference Dean? Honest question. Are commons more durable than buffalo?

      Yeah buffs are not actually carp and are and are plankton feeders which is why you rarely catch them on hook-and-line unless you snag them vs common carp which are an invasive species from China and seem to have a distinct ability to out survive the Buffaloes which have a tendency to Winter kill for some reason. So when you winter kill and you start seeing northern pike, common carp and bullheads going down you know you're getting to the bottom of the barrel and you're having some serious winterkill issues cuz they're the toughest of the group. Jamestown res has a history of buff dieoffs so if all your seeing is them there's still hope but if there are commons too well then things clearly got pretty bad in parts of the Reservoir.

      As for DNA for I.D. You would literally have to be blind to need such a tool to help you tell the difference between the two.

      I can pretty much guarantee that the nutrient and chemical run off from city lawns after a hard rain is way worse than run off from farm fields.

      Serious question - why do you never see a whole pile of dead walleye but seeing dead carp is sorta common? I’ve even seen quite a few dead pike on certain waters but never walleye other than the occasional floater.

      Well if my internet research is correct they are probably Buffalo (more silver) because Common appear to be yellow/gold in color? IDK, i'm not Carp expert and never want to be.

      While this is true, there's a pretty large disparity in the number of acres of each contributing to the problem. There are many, many wetlands in the countryside that look like a putting green in the summer and there isn't a house in the watershed.

      Personally, I refuse to fertilize a lawn. Last damn thing I want is to have to mow more than 3-4 times a summer.
