State environmental officials are warning against consuming certain fish from a lake in Apache County.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department issued an advisory Wednesday discouraging eating walleye caught at Lyman Lake.
According to officials, a recent test of fish tissue shows signs of elevated levels of mercury.
However, fishing, bird watching, swimming and other activities at the lake are unaffected.
