Small fish, less than an inch long. Schools of them swimming all over the pond, probably several thousand fish at least.
Great Bear Recreation Area Pond
I agree my cousin and I catch them in the summer
Very cool! My guess is that they are black bullhead catfish Ameiurus melas, based on the schooling, color, and tail.
Yes, they do look like tadpoles. I was with another person hiking and she spotted them first, but also thought they were tadpoles from far away. When we got up close we could see the whiskers and also see that there were far to many across the whole pool to be tadpoles.
If u hadn't have pointed that out u would've thought they were tadpoles, now I see it clearly. Nice spotting!
i like this spotting because it shows the whiskers so clearly. The whiskers gives this fish the name of " Cat Fish"
