 it  happens  when  a  tarnado  or  twister  forms  over  alake  and  all  the  water  gets  sucked  up  along  with  the  fish,the  winds  will  be  so  strong  that  it  can  dump  the  load  sucked  up  100s  of  miles  away,  which  seems  like  rain  and  also  can  get  mixed  up  with  rain

 A  genuine  doubt.  Why  does  it  rain  only  fish,  or  only  frogs......when  a  twister  sucks  up  stuff  it  cannot  be  selective.  Where  does  all  the  snails,  weeds,  rocks,  driftwood,  turtles,  crabs,  shrimps  or  the  many  other  organisms  that  share  the  habitat  with  fish  go  ???

 A  Quote  from  the  abovelinked  article  on  Bizarre  weather  phenomena.
 "One  thing  that  still  baffles  scientists  though  is  why  each  incident  only  involves  one  specific  species  of  animal,  where  in  most  cases  a  waterspout  seems  to  be  likely  to  suck  up  multiple  similarly-sized  animals  in  one  area."
 
 According  to  it,  "Scientists  are  baffled"  and  since  you  are  a  scientist,  its  imperative  that  you  be.   Chuckle   
 
 Jokes  apart,  I  vaguely  remember  reading  as  a  child  in  "Tell  Me  Why"  or  the  "World  Book"  or  some  damn  encyclopaedia  from  the  library,  that  the  heavier  objects  like  rocks,  wood,  larger  animals,  etc  get  carried  for  only  short  distances,  while  the  lighter  stuff  like  small  fish,  frogs,  algae,  etc  get  carried  for  much  longer  distances  as  they  get  caught  in  the  thicker  clouds,  whose  density  keeps  them  from  falling.  It  also  mentioned  that  it  is  usually  the  fish  fry  or  baby  fish  or  tadpoles,  that  get  sucked  up  in  a  large  quantity,  since  they  occupy  shallow  depths.  Since  the  fry  or  the  small  fish  of  a  particular  species  swim  together  and  get  caught,  there  is  abundance  of  a  particuar  species  in  a  particular  cloud.  If  the  conditions  are  favourable,  some  of  these  might  survive  in  the  clouds  and  even  thrive.  Others  get  frozen.  Amphibians  like  frogs  have  better  chances  of  survival  since  they  can  survive  a  period  of  suspended  animation  while  frozen.  
 
 The  theory  seems  plausible,  but  hasn't  been  proved.

 Maybe......but  I  still  feel  there  is  something  more  to  it  than  science  can  comprehend.  When  adult  frogs  are  lifted  up,  small  fish,  shrimp,  water  insects,  small  clumps  of  weeds  etc.  can  also  find  their  way  up.........but  funny,  never  find  their  way  down.

 Maybe  no  one  thinks  they  are  worth  noticing  /  mentioning.      Chuckle  
 
 Or  may  be,  all  the  water  insects,  snails,  weeds  and  shrimps  get  eaten  by  the  flying  frogs  and  fish.  That  explains  how  they  thrive  for  so  long.     Idea 
 And  after  the  food  stores  get  depleted,  to  escape  the  famine  in  the  clouds,  the  hungry  fish  and  frogs  jump  back  down  to  earth,  crossing  their  fins  and  hoping  to  fall  in  some  water  body.  But  alas   Sad   
 
 Now  this  theory   is  much  more  practical  than  all  the  previous  ones.  I  surely  am  heading  for  a  Nobel  with  this.   ROFL
