Description

Observed good spawning run in the mouth of a feeder stream to the lower Nottoway River. I am certain of the general ID of 'river herring' -- remember when folks scooped them up by the dozen. Illegal to posses now, so unsure of the exact species. Smallish individuals, but good number of them. Water level was 'normal' after being up for a while. Only sighting so far.
