bye bye lake fishies, bye bye
doubtful...more like gars, sturgeon or paddlefish. You know... typical fresh water fish.
You'd think but when they opened it in the late 80's there were salt water fish. The opening of the locks isn't a very typical scene. Mind you this was just a few small sharks but they were there down by the locks. Dudes were wading with drag-nets to get everything out. Like I said: a big mound of fish. It was something else.
Made me wanna jump the levee on my CR-80 a few more times.
