Dozens of fish dead in Mission Trails Park

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Dozens of dead fish are being spotted in the San Diego River running through Mission Trails Park.

Several hikers called CBS News 8 Sunday, and our cameras found several fish floating in the water.

The Department of Fish and Game tells us the deaths are most likely being caused by an algae bloom that is cutting off their oxygen.

Hikers we spoke to say it's a jarring sight.

“It’s sad… it’s really sad. It smells weird, it’s like creepy to see,” said Amber Saleh.

Fish and Game officers tell us they'll be heading to the park to investigate further Monday.
