Winter kill takes its toll
Thousands of fish float in the water and line the shores of Patterson Lake southwest of Dickinson.
And accompanying the dead fish is a smell like few others according to residents who live on the lake.
"It's terrible, you can't go outside," resident Donna Bline said. "I don't know who to get a hold of to clean that up. It needs to be cleaned up."
