Where do the fish go?

The river that flows through town is largely dry except for some pools of very warm, greenish water. So where do the fish, river otters, mink and beavers go?

A shallow pool. Had hoped for some rain from tropical storm Hermine but only got a couple of brief showers that barely made the ground wet. We have a 60% chance of getting .2 inches of rain today with little chance of rain for the next 10 days. It’s going to take a lot more rain than that to bring water levels up to normal.

Below is a photo of the river from this spring.
