Northern pike

In September 2007 the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) began a second attempt to eradicate Northern pike in Lake Davis by lowering the lake and poisoning the remaining waters with Rotenone, a naturally occurring poison deadly to gilled creatures.[3] California DFG fears, perhaps unfairly, that pike may escape the lake and enter the Sacramento River system, posing a potential threat to native anadromous fish species that are already threatened, such as steelhead and salmon. The effort is extremely controversial because pike are very popular gamefish in other areas of the country. Also, much money and effort has already been used to try and rid the lake of pike, through explosives, nets, shocking, and a previous poisoning attempt, all with little to no success. In September 2009, the DFG certified Lake Davis to be pike free. There have been many rumors but none proven to be true of pike being back in the lake. As of December 2010, there have been no pike seen.
