By Central Office June 14, 2019

Contact(s): Deborah Dix, DNR environmental enforcement specialist, 715-421-9914 or Raechelle Belli, Public Affairs Manager, 608-264-8942

MADISON - Department of Natural Resources staff is actively assessing the impact of a manure spill that led to a significant fish kill in Bostwick Creek in the Town of Bangor (La Crosse County).

The incident, which affects the area upstream of Highway M to Larson Road, was reported to the DNR on Saturday, June 8.

DNR law enforcement is also investigating. Although the downstream impact to the fishery is being assessed, anglers should be aware that fishing in the area has been compromised. An estimated 1,000 dead trout have been collected from the creek.

DNR fisheries staff will continue to monitor the creek.
