BETHEL, OH (FOX19) -

Visitors at East Fork Lake have been seeing hundreds of dead fish washing up on the shores.

Officials from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources say the problem stems from a lack of oxygen in the water.

According to ODNR, it's a common occurrence that they have to deal with. The occurrence happens when the temperature of the warmer water on the top of a lake begins to mix with colder deeper waters.
