Whats that smell!!!

This morning we got a little wind coming from the East (unusual to come from that direction) and one nasty odor along with it.

Jumping into the trusty Teryx to investigate I found one of the ponds below the house was drying up. Floating in that pond is thousands of fish belly-up in the sun. Guess I found the culprit causing a stink

The pond:

Dang......looks like maybe lack of oxygen in the pond, since it was drying up. I bet that it really smelled though.ugh

Pretty sure you are right ... lack of oxygen! The fish are carp and some weigh upwards of 15 pounds ... what a mess it is.

Just hope we get some rain soon! Wan't my goose pond full of water

That's really sad, Ken. Here we've had much more than average rainfall this year, especially in August and September, which are usually pretty dry. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get rain soon.

that is pretty nasty, and i'm sure the smell is even worse than it looks.

I had a dog once, a little terrier mutt that I got at the pound. He had been running wild with a pack when they picked him up. The first few weeks he kept digging under the fence and getting out of our yard. We lived right near City Park, which has a big lake that's stocked with fish. Every time he got loose he ran over there and stayed there all day. At dusk I'd find him on the front porch, waiting to come in and eat. He always smelled vile. He rolled in dead, rotten fish. It was awful. So I can imagine what it smells like, Ken. Ugh.

Been to that Ranch many times in the past (revoking liquer lic and shutting them down for health violations). There is a real big difference in the odors ... just don't know which is worse
