    I was wondering if you could get any information on Upper Otay's fish die off that seemed to occur about 2 years ago. It was a fun, quiet place to fish from a tube. Bass and bluegill fishing used to be good and then the water became very murky. People I know that used to fish it a lot are all wondering what happened. Has the lake been electroshocked to see if there are any fish in the lake? Any chance of the lake being restocked with fish? Thanks for answering all our questions.

    I have no information nor was I aware of the die-off you are referring to. I suggest you contact Russell Black with DFW as it would be up to them to shock or restock the lake if necessary.
