I was just thinking about a time long when I was standing on one of the steel bridges below the town of Siletz. I have told this story to several folks and Most probably did not believe me well this is what I saw: It was about this time of year and I was looking down on the clear water off the bridge when I saw 7 steelhead swimming in a v formation like ducks or geese. I kept watching and then there was 3 and 7 and 5 always an odd number more on one side than the other but there was a lead fish and the others formed a v behind him. I know it sounds unbelievable but I saw it with my own eyes. Has anyone else ever seen such an event?

i believe you! they studied why geese and ducks fly in a V formation and it turns out that it's more efficient. it's sort of like drafting in stock car racing. i don't see why it wouldn't work for fish.
