The California drought has created many oddities over the last few years but none as bizarre as a scene that unfolds regularly on a tributary of the Santa Ana River.

The stream's modest flow, provided almost entirely by a San Bernardino water treatment plant, suddenly stops, quickly stranding thousands of threatened Santa Ana sucker fish.

Volunteers and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employees dash into the vanishing puddles to net as many of the 4- to 6-inch fish as they can, placing them in buckets of water.
