Hi. I have foam gathering on surface of my pond. Is this a sign of something wrong with water quality.

As stated it is usually an abundance of nutrients / things that died and or are dissolving

In aquariums, they have protein skimmers that foam to remove proteins from the water. Could it be the water fall is acting as a makeshift skimmer?

Hi. The type of foam you described equals soap suds! This is from organic material in your pond. Try scooping out with a net anything on the bottom and do some water changes. If your pond is near big trees you might want to cover it with a net in the fall. I get a different type of foam in my pond this time of the year when my goldfish start to get sexually active!
