These are small, but the ones out there are far away.

With nothing but fins to propel themselves, how do they ever get up enough force to fly like that?

Really nice to see. You've captured them really well.
Never seen such, but have watched an eel climb a trickling waterfall.
Truly amazing how they do it

(need a "fish in Flight" thread)

They take a run at it from deep in the pool below the falls. The propulsion comes not from the fins, but from the white muscle mass that makes up most of their bodies.

That one is a sea trout - a migratory 'brown' trout. They are the same fish, and when sea trout come back into fresh water to spawn, they take on the same cryptic colouration as non-migratory trout. However, there were some brown trout jumping the falls as well. As they are the same fish, and as they adopt the same colouration for freshwater, it can be tricky to tell them apart at times. I reckon this one is a brown trout...

Nice series. Good job of showing the subtle colors of the scales.
