dace/chub confusion was inevitable.  Caught these in the Saw Mill River NY.  Are all of the below fish Creek Chubs? (except the last fish which I believe to be a Longnose Dace)

 

 

1)First caught some of these at one spot, Creek Chubs with no horizontal line I think

2)Then at another spot way upstream caught this little guy, figured was a Blacknose Dace...

3)But it turned there were tons of Creek Chubs at this spot, all had the horizontal line prominent, caught these all shapes and sizes and the small ones I checked seemed to have the dark spot on base of dorsal fin, so I guess the small ones werent Blacknose Dace but were juvenile Creek Chubs?

thanks Matt, Blacknose it is...guess the nose ain't long enough.  Was hoping was a Longnose because they seem far less common around those parts

 

It's interesting the same-sized Creek Chubs lacked the stripe in a different part of the river

What Nocomis species might be in your area?

I looked up Nocomis and I'm pretty sure none of them occur in that area
