Some fish may have pushed them into the river & it was too cold or too little oxygen. Maybe bass....

Think this is correct Nick. I read that bigger fish pushed them into the smaller inlets and the lack of oxygen killed them..Will try to find the article....

Just found it....

Little early for thst to actually happen now.

More than likely was just a giant body of fish too far up river . Quick moving tide that then doesn't leave enough of even in the available water .

Few weeks away from any body of fish being there to lock them in .

Maybe extreme tides or/and small bass chasing....agree it is a bit early. However, my buddy says there are lots of bass in the shallows. I don't know...I haven't been down to our place yet. I do know that if there are bunker...the bass will be in the bay soon. After the full moon, temps will rise ....
