MURRIETA, Calif., Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Like unwanted house guests, fish begin to smell after a few days, as residents of a California neighborhood learned.

The air has become so putridly pungent around a small golf course lake in Murrieta, people living nearby are keeping their windows and doors closed, The Press-Enterprise in Riverside reported Thursday. Dead fish up to three feet long that washed up on shore in recent days are to blame.

"This is what we call fish soup," said Christina Pinney, 31. "The flies are appalling; it's disgusting."

Hot weather, a drawdown of water and a lack of oxygen in the water are thought to have killed about 500 fish in the shallow, five-acre lake. About 120 rotting fish had been removed as of Wednesday.

John Martinez, director of operations at the golf course, says he is pumping more water back into the lake, but has to do it slowly or even more fish will die from temperature shock.

"We're kind of in a Catch-22," Martinez said.
