    Before seeing my own new ones do this, I had no idea they could shoot around so fast... Thought that was reserved for the monster predators like Northern Pike.

    That's what fish do when they're frightened.
    They rush around looking for a place to hide.
    There's no place for them to hide in that stream.

    at first blush i would disagree, though i see that others agree. to me it appeared that they
    were continuing their mating "frenzy" that i have been witnessing in the pond, only it was in the channel because the water was high at the time. many of the small fish were enjoying it also.
    they were all entering and leaving repeatedly. i would think they would not do this
    if they were frightened by it.

    I live in the middle of a hunting area and hunting season occurs during mating season, so I know animals can act in crazy ways.
    However, the fish in that stream have nowhere to run, nowhere to hide and can easily bump into rocks or worse, jump out of the water trying to escape.
    Not a big deal, I just wanted to point out that a person standing right next to that stream could easily look like a predator, which would be an additional challenge that the females have to avoid.

    true but it is cute you have to admit that .Even if they had a place to hide it would not keep something from getting it .Jumping would be a big problem when mating happens and you would be risking it

    Sorry I have to agree that those are some scared fish trying to get away from the predator all they see is a figurine you have the sun at your back. They can't make you out from a raptor. I'm afraid even with a tunnel in the stream section it appears so shallow that a blue heron would just reach into a shorter tunnel and pull the fish out.
