Colorado River-Matagorda dead fish everywhere

Fished the Matty surf this morning. Dead shad are covering the banks of the Colorado River and floating in thick mats from the jetties to the intercoastal canal. Mostly shad, but I did see some trout, sheepshead, and mangrove snapper with them. Should be pretty ripe down there by tomorrow.

Surf was rough but clear green early this morning and holding reds, trout, and more baby sharks than I ever saw. No dead fish on the beach yet.

I understand that is usually from a lack of oxygen in the water. Wonder what causes it?

The lower river doesn't get a whole lot of water exchange. When the pogies pile in there out of the gulf by the millions they deplete the oxygen and cause a fish kill. It happens every summer, sometimes a couple times a summer.

As thick as that is, that's just a blip on the radar screen on how many pogies are in the surf and bays. For whatever reason whether natural or un-natural low oxygen conditions will kill them.. and like Glenn mentioned it happens there every year. Clear lake usually has a big die off as well some years.

Tigerhead52 is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
If you've never heard of a "Jubilee" you should google it. It's the name given to something similar to this that happens occasionally on the east shoreline of Mobile Bay. There's a town, I believe it's Fairhope, that has a Jubilee bell that people will ring to let the townspeople know that one is happening. They will scoop up flounder, crabs, whatever comes to the top. Apparently their fish and game is fine with it.

I guess as long as you know its an oxygen issue and the fish are still alive then they would be fine to keep. I saw it down by the Cameron Ferry a number of years back and didn't know the cause at the time. A couple coonasses had coolers slap full of big dying flounder they were scooping up. They weren't even messing with the trout or reds. Musta had 200 lbs of flounder.
