The spawning period is here. The water level is not a problem for the salmonids anywhere this year.

The first female fish dug a spawning nest to the right of the camera’s field of view (you can see a lighter gravel patch there); in this way we saw the competition between two male fish and the behaviour of the young satellites still under measure.

Interesting times are coming
