So I went with a friend to Hopatcong State Park... I didn't plan on keeping any fish (and in the end I resisted the urge to bring them all home), but I did want to practice catching stream fish. We waded up and down the Muscenetcong river and then Lake Hopatcong... here's what we found

Banded Killifish.jpg

Banded Killifish were abundant in the Muscenetcong river, they breed in a stagnant, algae filled concrete channel connected to the river

Crayfish were everywhere as well... colors varied considerably

There was this dead Pike/Muskie at the shores of Lake Hopatcong... actually there were alot of dead fish in varying states of decay... from freshly dead to piles of fish bones

I found this wedged between stones in the middle of the river

Is that last picture of a freshwater or brackish water sponge?

That particular species is only found in pineapples under the sea.

Actually, I'm told they are an established invasive in central Florida...
