Share the article please?

Or are you asking IF the fire has killed the fish?

Much like all the fires up north around lakes, I doubt the status of the fish is high on the priority list right now.... Chambers, Long Draw etc.

The fire wonít likely be what kills the fish... the runoff from the next big storm that washes all the ash into the water may be.

Confused by the topic of this threat... I'm assuming you're asking if the fires will have any effect on the population of the fish in the lake?

Maybe not immediately, but as Ajax mentioned I can see the impact later on.

I would seriously doubt that the Williams Fork Fire will have any huge impact on the fish population in Williams Fork Res. It will have an impact on the river next year as the snow melts but even that will be limited due to the topography and small catch basins in that area. Hopefully Miother Nature has put a damper on that fire so I can get back to bow hunting my area.
Iím definitely not a wildlife biologist but hoping it doesnít have a huge factor next year.

This was before the Williams Fork Fire.

Maybe the river above the reservoir is what they were referring to.
