Animas River suffered 80% die-off after 416 Fire ash flows

Survey shows aquatic population severely depleted through Durango
Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Pete Deren, center, throws an anode to shock fish last week as Ryan Votta prepares to net them, while Jim White walks the raft down the Animas River during a fish count. The anode is used to shock fish so they can be collected, counted and then released back into the river. CPW says fish populations are down about 80% because of 416 Fire flooding in 2018.
