Not really, my experience is from fish keeping in home aquariums. There are treatments available, but some cause more stress - and again no experience on treating lakes etc.
As long as water parameters are good, it will cease once the immune systems have improved and stress levels decrease.
Perhaps keep one quarantined somehow to see if the problem worsens? I'm sure someone with lake experience will be along to offer more and probably useful advice! Just my take on it. Hope it sorts itself soon for you

I'd say (without seeing)it's probably damage from handling, quite common on newly stocked fish where the fin Ray's poke through the net. Can take some time to heal if being re caught time and time again.
Is there any cotton wool type growth?

Stress probably, fish infections and diseases are usually caused by stress while adapting to new water parameters.

There from chilston fishery and no the originals don't seem to be affected I don't know how to put pics on here it's been a while but basically the spikes on the top fin are showing where the fin has broken down also signs of rotting in tails....I've been advised to just treat each one with a care kit when caught but that a must be a bigger picture
