This story is amusing enough to publish (with permission), even though it is about goings-on outside the Suwannee River Basin.
Various Notropis species form unusual spawning
aggregations. For example, here is a spawning aggregation of the noble
chrosomus AKA the Rainbow shiner, arguably the most colorful
fish in North America. This aggregation was photographed in Marshall
creek near Monroeville Alabama north of Mobile.
5 Holes (also known as Hamilton Seven Sisters Spring) is on Suwannee River State Park (SRSP) land, and is normally closed to the public.
We did have permission for this outing, thanks to Park Manager Craig Liney, as well as for the later
Five Holes Cleanup and Site Exploration.
Expedition leader Chris Mericle reports he’s gotten the
Suwannee River State Park vehicle entrance fees
waived for this weekend’s outing, plus a permit
…to view a unique closed area of the park called “5 Holes”. 5
Holes is a series of karst windows leading to a spring. When the
water level is right you can walk through a semi-cavern from the
river up the spring run to the spring.
