DNR Investigating Fish Kill in Lyon County Stream

The state Department of Natural Resources says it's investigating a fish kill in northwest Iowa. Officials say a conservation officer reported seeing dead fish and crawdads in a Lyon County stream on Tuesday. Further investigation Wednesday revealed dead fish of different sizes and species in the stream, although it was unknown how many fish had been affected.  Officials say aerial spraying is the most probable cause,  but lab results are still pending. Three aerial applicators were flying in the area Tuesday.
