No, happens every year. Couple years ago some tweedledee eco honey called and reported someone had dumped a lot of yellow paint in Georgian Bay. O kay, please don't have any kids or vote.

Ok. How does it not effect the breathing of the fish
Where do they hide to get away from it

Lets relate it to the atmosphere, we pump all sorts of "stuff" into the atmosphere and although it does effect a lot of people, assma, sneezing, etc, we're not quite dead yet. Now for eons vegetation has been spreading pollen in the air, floats along it's merry way, falls into the water and decays. I haven't seen any 911 calls yet for suffocating fish except the ones that people have to hold up for a 1/2 hour video. Get the idea.

Ok. I guess my question should have been, Does it affect their habits
Like in my post. They seem to be gone,, No 911, Got your idea
Just wanted to know , what fish do with such heavy pollen
Thank you

I doubt pollen makes much of a difference to fish. Some of the lakes Iíve fished have like 2Ē of visibility from either mud, algae, or a mix of things and the fish do just fine in them. Look at scugog and rice, in the summer sometimes you canít see at all in the water but thereís some huge bags of bass brought to the weigh ins every year. I would imagine your lack of success the other day had to do with other factors way more than pollen.

Pollen attracts bugs

Bugs attract minnows

Minnows attract predator fish

Fish the Pollen
