Hi everyone, I am new to the forum, but not to collecting or keeping native fish. I have spent most of my collecting time in the diverse Southeast where I pursued a fisheries degree at Murray State. Now I find myself in the upper Midwest, specifically Sioux Falls, SD. Not a lot of species to pursue for collection in the area as I am most interested in darters, dace and shiners. I did find a population of southern redbelly dace in the area that was previously unknown to the state non-game biologist so that was pretty exciting! They are extremely rare in the state of South Dakota with only 3 known populations!
I see that there are a few members from IA, MN and WI. I spend as much time in the driftless area as possible trout fishing and would love to meet up for a fishwatching or collecting trip if there are any members in the area who wouldn't mind me tagging along! I would also not be opposed to a north/central MO trip if there are members in that area since KC is only about a 5 hour drive from Sioux Falls.
