Watery Wednesday

I accompanied kids and mothers to a stream where gaspereau were returning to rivers to spawn. They were so easy to see. The rest of the world calls them alewife and this Wiki article speaks a bit about the different names.

A very clear pic of them, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I have many. They were amazingly clear.
Beautifully clear image, Mary, and another time of getting my education on SC!
Mary MacADNski: I ate them as a kid always admiring my mother for removing bones for several younger children.

It's that time of year again!
Mary MacADNski: My son taught his young nephew to cast perfectly. however the kids had fake fishing rods without hooks for this day.
Beautifully clear water Mary, and a great song
Mary MacADNski: I always loved this song.
Great image Mary, I like the fluid movement that this still image conveys.

Little boy I know calls them "little fishes" smile It was a nice song, thank you. Sung in such a relaxed way.
Mary MacADNski: No one sings as relaxed as Bing. That is his charm. My son taught his young nephew to cast perfectly. however the kids had fake fishing rods without hooks for this day.
They appear to be almost transparent.
Mary MacADNski: They have silver sides out of water.

Finne that you captured them swimming so quickly.
Mary MacADNski: I got several varied shots.
i am astounded by the clarity of the water, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: It is just outside a city and may not exist all year. Spring brings the highest water.

I've never heard of them before; it seems that they re a variant of a herring of which I'm more familiar.

I remember the song very well.
Mary MacADNski: Herring do not come back to fresh water. They are a salt water fish, I believe.

I always have to look into water if I can see fish swimming, I can watch that for quite some time. Wonderful picture.
Mary MacADNski: I ate these as a kid.
A great shot--full of life...
Mary MacADNski: There were hundreds here.
Nice shot, Mary - is it treated the same way as herring in Europe?
Mary MacADNski: I think herring is a salt water breeder, but am not sure.

What clear water - a lovely picture Mary. I have heard of alewives, but never heard of gaspereau.
