Seasons on the Portage River in Three Rivers, Michigan
Friday, June 19, 2009
On Tuesday there were a whole school of pike - or muskie? Swimming around below Boys Dam. Impressive! They are beautiful and strange looking (and not easily fooled by fishermen.) I didn't get a picture but did get (a blurry) one of a large fish - a carp or sucker - jumping up on the face of the dam. They do that a lot, but my camera is too slow to catch them. A fisherman told me they were eating the algae off the face of the dam.
