Fish kill reported at Lake Maloney

LINCOLN, Neb. – An estimated 1,000 to 3,000 fish have died in a fish kill that was reported May 26 at Lake Maloney. Those fish were primarily white bass and wipers.

Nebraska Game and Parks Commission biologists suspect a disease caused the die-off. The white bass were in spawning condition, and the high temperatures likely added stress to the fish, which would have made them more susceptible to disease.

Samples of dead fish have been collected and will be analyzed at a laboratory to help identify any potential disease.

Lake Maloney is located in Lincoln County in west-central Nebraska.
