The drought was very evident in the year 2000 in the southern U.S. I could easily walk across the river which was less than knee deep.There were hundreds of thousands of dead corbicula fluminea shells. That is an introduced asiatic clam that has invaded almost every stream in North America and the Caribbean. The larger shells are native mussels. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corbicula_fluminea
