Took this picture last weekend from the property I have along the Illinois River in Woodford.  There is a boat ditch coming in from the river that has an old artesian well that is keeping a small hole open.  Had lots a bubbling dead carp around.  With the river frozen and a stretch a river that is not very deep by me, looks like there might be a pretty good kill off, probably wont put a dent in those buzzards.

My guess is since the river and the ditch coming into it is not that deep (the river is wide by me and I’m pretty far from the main channel), with the ice and snow cover and because there are so many carp there is probably low oxygen level for them.

Now that you mention it I did not see any catfish.  That area is pretty good for catfish and bullheads.

That won’t even put a dent in the asian invasion.
