Over the past two years, Creighton Conservation Officers have had to deal with at least 14 instances where anglers have left fish, mainly northern pike, to waste at several lakes in the area. These fish could have been easily released back to the waters but were blatantly left behind. If convicted of wasting fish, a person will receive a mandatory one year angling suspension.
