Two years to the day that the Bureau of Reclamation began filling Lake Nighthorse, the agency Wednesday started testing the effect of releasing water from the reservoir. Specially made 500-micron tubular nylon nets, fine enough to strain out plankton, ensure that no fish or eggs can escape from the lake.
