Don't know exactly why but the we had a major fish kill in the river this winter, mainly Largemouth and Musky. The canals and bays are full of them. There are a bunch along the US shoreline and backwater areas as well.

Give them a report of what you have seen and where. They may want to go collect some samples.

About 2 weeks ago we had the Lake Erie LSC Citizens Fishery Advisory Committee and it was reported they had only seen about 500 dead Gizzard Shad. They suspected VHS as a possible cause based on physical signs but had no results yet.

Or "Any unusual fish die-offs can also be reported to Michigan authorities by email at DNR-FISH-Report-Fish-Kills@michigan.gov, Whelan said."

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.

One of our club members reported to Jeff (last name?) from fisheries last Thursday .  Jeff got right on it and alerted Ontario as well. Samples have been taken and sent to the labs. They suspect vhs since the die off is multi species and happened during colder waters.
If this proves true it will affect the collection of musky eggs in the river.
Jeff said the virus is always present and sometimes flares up for reasons they don't know. 
He claimed that the number of dying fish is usually not a high percentage of the population although still a concern.
I learned a lot of this at the regional fisheries meeting in Taylor last week.
So much water.  So many lures.  So little time.
