From the City of Lewisville:
We are not planning to remove the fish for several reasons. Large parts of the creek are inaccessible (or at least, not safely accessible); having a large number of people entering the creek could negatively impact other native wildlife; and with the dead fish mostly being very small, we believe turtles, raccoons and coyotes will take care of most of them within a day or two. We do have people watching the creek, and if they see larger fish that they can reach safely, they will remove them.
That said, I did discover some litter that needs some cleanup in a place that's not too inaccessible. There's also another buried tire. (I swear there must be a huge pile of tires somewhere upstream that wash down now and then)
I'll post pictures soon.
