Fish Rescue

As waters recede at Montour Preserve’s Lake Chillisquaque, shallow pools were left behind trapping small fish. This afternoon preserve staff netted about 200 shiners, sunfish and small bass and returned them to the lake. These fish escaped drying pools, hungry great blue herons and a pair of otters looking for an easy meal. We’ll know those rescued fish if we ever see them again–they are the ones with the big smiles

A few of of the "big catch"

on their faces.
