I found a stoneroller in the upper pond of my Gar River . No, thats not
the newest ride at Redneckland...
I was wondering if anyone who knew more about this fish thinks its a big
feat, or something they could do easily. The falls has 2400 gph coming over
it. Its a bit over a foot high. The first 2/3rds going up is slabs of sand
stone in sort of a step like configuration. The top 6 or so inches is a
shear drop. The top is little more than six inches across and about and inch
deep and over a foot wide. I have seen fish , usually stream killis or
cyprinids of kinds, on the slabs trying to migrate up stream, but never had
a fish make it up and over.
