We call it the “Hillbilly Salmon Run.”  As days lengthen and water warms, many fish migrate out of the reservoirs and into the streams.  First come the walleye, then the white bass, crappie, bluegill and more—most species traveling upstream to spawn.  At times, the biomass can be stunning, with fish causing an audible ruckus amidst the chorus of birds and frogs.

All winter we have waited for this, fishing rods ready.  Saturday’s trip with Aaron and JD was reminder that our “water supply” is full of natural wonders that depend on clean water just as much as we do.  This Water Wednesday, take out your calendar and block off time to revel in the wonders of the Watershed and the promise of spring.
