One of the many tadpoles dead from the dried up creek. A friend and I scooped some up that were still alive and relocated them to a favorable area. Also, thousands of minnows, mosquito fish, and baby crawdads were saved from the muddy pools. It was so bad in some that the fish were starting to burrow in the mud. That is not a fin sticking out but a piece of mold trying to decay its body.
