Hot weather kills hundreds of fish in Lake Arlington

ARLINGTON -- Hundreds of small fish were found dead on the Fort Worth shores of Lake Arlington this week.

Texas Parks and Wildlife officials determined the fish kill was the result of high temperatures that have depleted oxygen levels in the water, Lake Arlington supervisor Michael Debrecht said.

The dead fish were found Tuesday and removed a day later. The Dallas//Fort Worth area has experienced several weeks of 100-degree temperatures with only a few days below that mark. Fish kills are typical during the high temperatures of summer, Texas Parks and Wildlife officials said Thursday.
