Logo Michigan DNRAs snow and ice cover recede from Michigan lakes, officials say people should be prepared to see dead fish or other aquatic creatures in the water.

The Department of Natural Resources says winter conditions often cause die-offs of fish, turtles, frogs, toads and crayfish.

Martha Wolgamood of the Fisheries Division says “winter kill” is common, particularly in shallow lakes with excess vegetation and soft bottoms. It also happens in ponds, streams and canals.
