This pretty boy came out of Kate Fowler Branch, which trickles right through my home town of Ninety Six, SC.

Look how wide he gets that mouth! Definitely the alpha pred in his stretch of the stream. He also liked to thrash me with his head with his mouth open like that.

Colors pretty faded at this point, but still a good-looking fish.

Ah, the humble Creek Chub. I caught this one on rod and reel in N. Wilkesboro last Spring along with spawning Bluehead Chubs. Creek+Chub.JPG
