Correct on the whitetail shiner.  Also looks like you got a young warpaint shiner (#4).  Also, do I see Tennessee shiners in here too?  The sucker is a northern hogsucker.

Thanks! Yeah I did catch some adult Warpaints, so #4 makes sense. I usually get Tennessee Shiners there as well.

Nice! That would have to be a Mountain Brook Lamprey based on range, wouldn't it?

On fishmap for Fletcher there are Ohio and Chestnut Lamprey's, I don't know which is more common though.

Lampreys:  American brook, Mountain brook, Ohio and Chestnut all occur in French Broad, but Menhinick's book shows three of those (American, Ohio, Chestnut) only occurring farther downstream near the TN-NC border.  Mountain brook is the most likely one farther upstream near Fletcher and Asheville; it extends all the way up to the head of the French Broad near Rosman NC.

 

#1, 10, 11 = Tennessee shiner

#2, 3 = Saffron

#4 = Warpaint

#12 = Whitetail
