Default Asian carp

Was at the Dayton dam today and asian carp were stacked up THICK right in the power-plant discharge.
You could see dozens of them with their fins and tails sticking out of the water and jumping occasionaly.

Aside from people bringing them above the dam, how do you suppose they might be able to make it past that point of the river.
That's a tall dam, and I can't imagine that they could get through the turbines and into the upper river.

On the Illinois river, I guess they "lock-up", (get through the navigation locks)
Is it only a matter of time before our beloved Fox river is infested all the way up to Wisconsin?

Boy, I sure hope not ....my guess is they will somehow make there way into the Fox. Like you alluded to, some irresponsible person will release them above the dam eventually. How was the fishing there by the way?
