There is nothing more exciting than peering into a river and spotting a fish darting back and forth. Donít you love to connect with nature this way?

Spawning season is a great time to observe fish because this is when they are most colourful, and spend time in the open water, where you can see them. This is because the fish are preparing and guarding their nests. If the water is clear enough, you can take a picture of a fish busily fanning out a nest and waiting for a mate.

The Sydenham River has an amazing variety of fish. Over 80 species have been reported throughout the watershed. Two of the most significant species that live in the Sydenham are the Eastern Sand Darter, and the Spotted Gar. Both of these species are threatened.
