Yeaterday we drove from Windsor to Steamboat then back to the Channel, we didn't see one dead carp. Didn't see any on Tuesday or all of last week. I don't know about south of Steamboat. Hopefully it has run it's cycle.

I was in Havi last week, and the carp were no problem at all. I think I saw two in 5 days on the water.

Saw about half a dozen dead carp at the lower end of Parker. I'm sure they will tend to collect in the no-wake zone or marina in front of the Bluewater.
The casino maintenance folks (or state parks) better stay on top of cleaning them out of there or it will smell to high hell in no time. Just one or two in the marina carried a nasty smell throughout.

We just got back from a day on the lake. We went all the way to the dam and back, didnt see or smell one dead Carp. I didnt notice the orange film either but it would be hard to see on the toons.

The carp die off may or may not hit Parker.

It is likely to do so, since the virus spread downriver from Mohave to Havasu. It's only logical that it will continue south, probably all the way to Mexico, eventually.

There's easily 5 or 6 (or more) dead carp on the Strip every day, even without the Koi Virus. I think people are just more aware of them now because of the news about the Virus.

We spent yesterday at the Head gate (Bluewater) sandbar.
Saw several fresh kills floaters.

I spoke too soon.

Just got a call from a friend down on the beach at Blue Water. She said there were dead carp all over the beach, and saw a bunch more floating by.

So I guess it's here.

At least they will all flow down to the Res. :D

I thought the water on the river was too cold for the virus??

At Havasu now and haven't seen any! We were at Havasu over 7-4 and the only damn dead fish was the one my dog had to roll on! WTH? Took a few baths without success then finally found a peroxide, baking soda, epsom salt, dishwashing detergent mixture to finally cure the SMELL.....:|err

What about Katherine's

Also, when we were in Parker last weekend (4th) we smelled something foul by the bluewater.

Yeah, the floaters were collecting on Friday across from the Bluewater.

Saw three dead carp on the lower river this weekend. Another one dying on shore. Don't remember ever seeing dead fish down there before.
