Rain in Western Australia's Mid West region has caused rivers to flow that have been dry for more than 16 months.
Frances Jones, from Wooleen Station, says a steady flow of water is moving down the Murchison River.
"We've got the spangled perch and a bony bream that survive in the Murchison," she said.
"The headwaters are actually full of all these little fish jumping ahead of the water, so all these tiny fish were jumping out, landing on the sand, flapping around a bit and waiting for the Murchison to catch up with them."
