Town Lake, Fall in Ruby

The Town Lake is in process to become a riparian area because the drier years have allowed willows to arrange themselves along the length and middle of the lake and  provide  bird habitat.  This will be a site to observe as it transforms.   We have many migrating ducks .  We have had some fish transplanted from Mineral lake, but might need winter rains to sustain them.  There was a lot of bass fishing this summer, many caught and released including some large (7+ lb) catches.

David Bygott counts numbers of duck species daily in the delight of migration.  Be sure to see David’s flickr Birds of Ruby.  Well worth your time and curiosity.

Non-Monsoon seems appropriate 2020. 2″ rain and drying. The oaks are turning due to dryness and shorter days.
