Rhyming Riddles

  • When trout can't swim they're in a jam.  For healthy streams, remove the dam.
  • These critters like to drink and browse, but they kick up mud so let's move those cows.
  • Where there's no shade it's hot and so -- leafy plants near streams should grow.
  • Trout streams should not be flat and wide, rocks give trout a place to hide.
