The Shoshone River east of Cody is choked with mud for miles. Wyoming’s Game and Fish fisheries biologist is investigating for massive fish kills. The sediment release apparently happened when Willwood Irrigation workers flushed water from the Willwood Dam between Cody and Powell.
Willwood Irrigation District Manager Todd Singbeil would not comment Sunday on the mud flow.
State fisheries biologist Jason Burkhardt was not available for an interview either, but did confirm he is investigating the issue.
