Riffles are the shallower, faster moving sections of a stream. Look for areas with a fast current where rocks break the water surface. That's a riffle.
Riffles are important to fish habitat. As water rushes over the rocks it adds oxygen to the water. Insects that live in the water need oxygen, so they like to live in the riffles. Fish can find food to eat in riffles.

  -> NO I certainly DON'T mean ripples! See: RIFFLE—Shallow rapids in an open stream, where the water surface is broken into waves by obstructions such as shoals or sandbars wholly or partly submerged beneath the water surface.
