Dead Fish at Wildhorse Reservoir

Thousands of dead fish are washing up on the shores of Wildhorse Reservoir, victims of depleted oxygen caused by warm temperatures and low water levels.

Nevada wildlife officials say campers and anglers intending to head to the popular lake north of Elko over the long Labor Day weekend will find less than ideal conditions - in more ways than one.

Fishing will be poor, it will probably smell like rotting fish, and there's bound to be flies.
