Striper season is in full swing along the Hudson. This prized & celebrated fish is streaming throughout the estuary. But the coastwide abundance of striped bass is on the decline, according to the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission. The spawning stock biomass – or portion of the population able to reproduce – has been in decline since 2004. The numbers are so low that the commission is required to act. New steps will be, and must be, taken to protect this iconic species.

Nothing like a quiet day on the river, took the dogs, a rod and a box of flies for a quick walk which turned into a 3 hour session (dogs didn’t seem to mind) loads of great looking Wildies supping on BWOs was good to christen the new Rod and reel

Rainy days just make the swamp a little more mysterious. Rain is also the only significant source of water for the Okefenokee. After falling into the swamp, these raindrops will meander through the cypress forests, wet prairies and lakes of the Okefenokee before exiting into either the Suwannee River or the St. Mary’s River. Both of these rivers originate within the Okefenokee.

Just a little installation in #Pawtucket. 20’ into a combined sewer whose only ingress/egress is via winch. Check that one off my list! And finishing with a quick install in a storm drain! 💙🌎💦 . . . #cso #oldinfrastructure #water #science #sewer #stormwater #riverkeeper #saveourwater #runoff #tech #ms4 #environment #hardware #sustainability #nature #climatechange #bigdata #greeninfrastructure #solutiontopollution #cleanwater #waterquality #startup #environment #dowhatmatters

The iconic new bridge spanning the Hudson. . . . What a treat to go out for a Wednesday evening sail on the Hudson River, witness a glorious sunset behind the Palisades, and then watch the new bridge light up as night fell around us - - because of the light wind, we had the river almost to ourselves. Magical. . . . #sail #sailing #instasail #instasailing #hudsonriver #sky #view #water #bridge #bridgephotography #bluehour #riverkeeper #bluehourphotography #iloveny #newyorkonly #scenicny #wanderlust #nightphotography #magical #shattemucyachtclub #nyackboatclub #reflection #tappanzeebridge @newnybridge #teamcanon #mycanonstory #canonfanphoto @canonusa #bhportdev @bheventspace #heidifuhrmanny

BACTERIA UPDATE: our first 2019 monitoring week comes with great news - all bacteria sites on the Choptank River had passing results. Get outside and enjoy the rivers this Memorial Day weekend!! Visit the theswimguide.org for more information. #SwimmableShoreRivers Great Marsh Beach - PASS Sailwinds Beach - PASS Bill Burton Beach - PASS The Strand, Oxford - PASS Bellevue Beach - PASS Please note that there are inherent risks associated with open water swimming and recreational contact including, but not limited to, bacterial infections. Bacteria levels can change, particularly as a result of significant rain events. Always rinse off after swimming in the river, never swim with open wounds, avoid water contact for 24-48 hours after a significant rain event, and always obey signage and local laws whenever swimming in open water. ShoreRivers utilizes the standardized EPA criteria of 104 cfu/100 ml for a single sample and 35 cfu/100 ml for the geometric mean calculated from multiple samples for collecting and analyzing bacteria samples. #riverkeeper #waterkeeper #swimmablewaters

Yesterday was quite the day at #nationalharbor ! While putting the finishing touches on our Sea Dog lab, an impressive squall came thru creating a water spout on the river that flipped a few boats. A few hours later, this beautiful young labrador got into a pickle when she swam too far out chasing ducks. Thankfully, NH has an excellent first responder team who was able to rescue her and keep her safe while they found her owner. #potomac #potomacriver #riverkeeper #waterkeeper #seadog

So last night was an epic night, amazing spinner fall out the evening rise in full force. So after a couple of cast lessons I took @kali_max_ziva down on the river. Before this she had only cast on grass and into a couple of pools. But she did it after loosing two fish in a emerger mayfly I changed her fly to a grey winged pheasant tail and this awesome 2 and a half ponder supped the fly and went off like a shot. No help from me she cast the fly (perfectly) played the fish, landed it and returned it no with her name in the fishing diary for all time

Found an old photo from my aunts collection with just Shallow Ford written on the back. Almost certainly taken from the old Huntsville bridge before the road was paved. Shallow Ford, a rock-bottomed crossing point on the Yadkin River, was the site of several important events in North Carolina history. The ford was used by settlers and traders in the region from about 1750 until about 1920, when highways and bridges rerouted traffic. The course of the Yadkin River at this point forms the boundary between present-day Forsyth County and, to its west, Yadkin County. The Shallow Ford crossing is approximately 600 yards south of the modern bridge on the Huntsville-Lewisville road. Shallow Ford was an essential link on Great Wagon Road, the frontier road used by immigrants to backcountry North Carolina in the mid-eighteenth century. Please help us support clean water 💧!!!!Thanks so much everyone! #water #yadkinriver #yadkinvalley #2019 #riverkeeper #waterkeeperalliance #kayaking #canoe #canoeing #farm #farming #house #barn #yadkinriverkeeper #winstonsalem #yadkincounty #fish #fishing #cleanwater #cleanwaterforall #watershed #history #historical

A huge thank you to the 300+ people who made it along to 'Our City in Nature' on Tuesday and made it such a great day full of engaging conversations and inspiring ideas focusing on Melbourne's relationship with it's flora and fauna.⠀ ⠀ We love running events like these as they give us all an opportunity to learn from each other. This wonderful image snapped by @yarrariverkeeper of Neil Blake OAM, aka the Port Phillip Baykeeper, sharing his insights in the afternoon workshops, with crowds all around, says it all.⠀ ⠀ We'll be asking for participant feedback over the next few days to assist with planning for the 2020 event, so keep an eye on your inbox!⠀ ⠀ #ourcityinnature #communityaction #peerlearning #riverkeeper #baykeeper #melbourne #nature #rivers #portphillipbay nativeanimals #threatenedspecies #conservation #climatechange #environmentalscience #australianwildlife #citizenscience #conference #urbanpopulations #urbangrowth #parks #ppwcma #seminar #sustainability #communitydevelopment #training #learning #NRM #peopleofNRM

Fun fact: The Cahaba River has a greater diversity of fish species than the entire state of California! . Alabama’s 132k miles of rivers and streams are home to 38% of North America’s fresh water fish species, 51% of its freshwater turtle species, and 60% of its freshwater mussel species! Alabama has consistently been rated in the top 5 US states for biological diversity, and Alabama is the most biologically diverse state east of the Mississippi. Unfortunately, it’s also ranked in the top 5 for number of endangered species. . Why does any of this matter? -Alabama's lakes and rivers generate over 1 Billion dollars in revenue from recreational activities alone. -Over 70% of new medicines are produced from natural sources, so maintaining biological diversity is paramount to finding new medicines. -Whether it's from industry, agriculture, or, my personal favorite that keeps me employed, stormwater runoff, pollution costs taxpayers. From having to provide additional treatment to keep drinking water clean and safe, to dredging channels filled with sediment, to removing hazardous industrial waste left over from the 70s, you’re paying for it all! By looking out for our rivers and the life that inhabits them, we can save taxpayers some money! . Thanks for coming to my TED Talk. Stats mostly from Alabamarivers.org.

Nice to see the river thriving in the low water conditions this year has brought. These Flat body mayfly (Heptagenia sulphurea) aka Yellow May Duns are one of my favourite aquatic mini beasts

Getting a good start on this fairly large block. Gardening and a small commission are taking a lot of time away from personal work. Our window for beautiful perfect spring weather is very small. Soon the high heat and humidity will be upon us and I’ll have to spend more time indoors than I want to.

RIVERKEEPER WRAPPED STONE | I find it very difficult to walk the length of a beach without pocketing a trusty stone to hold. My love of pebbles lead me to try dressing them up with another favourite texture, cane. Keep one on your desk as a paperweight or add some flair to a table setting with one on each guest's plate & napkin. Each one unique, cane braided goodness. Measures approx. 9 x 6cm | stone, cane [shop category GIFTS & STATIONERY] http://ow.ly/soUZ30nrrum #thesocietyinc #sibellacourt #riverkeeper
