Very cool, Ben! I'm jealous. Thanks for posting, it's always fascinating for me to see fish in the desert. That sonora is an especially neat gal.

Nice pics, and I would really like to see those Headwater Chubs around. Very nice fish! But whoever named the Roundtail Chub should have had his eyes examined!

Awesome stuff Ben! It's neat to see some of these species that I hardly ever hear about. Fossil Creek looks like a great place to snorkel - interesting species and clear water!

Awesome job Ben. You certainly ran the fish tour these past 12 months!

Fossil Creek is an amazing place. A true oasis with some unique fish. Ben's post inspired me to visit it last fall. I guess I need to share a few photos from there at some point...

That place is really pretty. I'm kinda jealous of those who get to enjoy such clear waters.
