Last one for awhile, I promise!
I was fishing Bass Creek in Boone Co., Missouri today, just a few miles from yesterday's spot. This intermittent creek runs into Bonne Femme Creek, which runs into the Missouri River.
I caught several of these minnows today in some leftover runs with minimal flow. When I was catching them I thought Rosyface Shiner, but I returned home and saw that Rosyface Shiner doesn't really live around here. So, that, coupled with another look at my photos, makes me wonder if these were Emerald Shiners? If not, am I at least in the correct genus?
No photos of them, but the dorsal fin had 8 rays and the anal fin had either 10 or 11, I couldn't get a really good count in the field.
