City: No fishing at Wintersmith Lake until further notice

A “No Fishing” sign stands by the side of Wintersmith Lake Tuesday after a minor spill into a tributary of the lake. It is believed that a resident is responsible for the spill. Officials on Tuesday were working to identify the substance.

Temporary no-fishing signs have been posted at Wintersmith Park, due to a minor spill into one of the tributaries leading to Wintersmith Lake.

Fishing is being discouraged until mitigation is completed.

City of Ada Public Information Director Lisa Bratcher said the proper regulatory authorities have been notified.

“This in no way affects the drinking water in Ada,” she said. “As soon as the clean-up process is completed, the no fishing signs will be removed.”
