It is true gome fish still exist, but they are mainly suck ers. If Belt creeks water was not poisonous, these fish would not have died. If this water was cleared ano restocked with fish, in a few years we would have good angling and thb some serious disease. would help liven Belt up. One of the main sources of harm U.
