Sounds exactly like smelt. The runs here on the Columbia River and major tribs were legendary. No more, they basically are next to extinct.

There are many edible mushrooms here, I only know a few of them. It seems like every time I go out this time of year I see a type I have never seen before.

Over-fishing and habitat loss. Or habitat loss and over-fishing. People have differing opinions on which is more to blame.

Over-fishing is easy to understand...habitat loss is more complicated. Dams and culverts; river, creek, stream, and wetland degradation from development, pollution, and resource extraction (logging, gravel harvest, mining) all get into the picture.

Yup. From my armchair I'd guess dams would be numero uno.
