DERIDDER, La. (AP) — The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says it has put more than 40,000 fish into a southwest Louisiana lake to replace some of those lost to a fish kill caused by Hurricanes Laura and Delta. The department says it is also coordinating work to add more fish to Bundick Lake near DeRidder in Beauregard Parish. A news release Monday said the lake is known for abundant sport fish. But hurricanes dumped leaves, trees, branches and other organic debris into the lake. As that decomposed, it used up oxygen in the water, and large numbers of fish died.
