Another fish picture

I took fish pictures in both Westbrook and the main creek today--this is the best one.  It's a minnow perhaps 2 inches in length--don't know what yet.

Westbrook above the rock crossing has baby fish in all sizes from <1/2 inch to ~4 inches.   The rock crossing is keeping water up in that area much longer than it used to last--it's not exactly a dam, but it slows the flow down.  Westbrook below the rock crossing is getting only a trickle through the rocks, and no longer flows all the way to the south fenceline.   I've seen only the tiniest fish there, all under an inch in length.  I haven't explored the full length of the stream from the crossing to the south fence, though.  We're supposed to get rain this coming week, which will preserve the "fishery" somewhat longer.
