Went after Darters mainly, I think a few may be Wounded and Greenfin, but the rest I am unsure of.Pigeon+_1_.JPG

Saffron I believe. I didn't see many Shiners, and the ones I did were tiny. Pigeon+_10_.JPG

2 4 5 7 8 15 16 = Greenfin darters 

3, 12 =  Greenside or Tuckaseegee darter - not sure how to distinguish those two.

10 = Saffron shiner (with blackspot flukes encysted)

11 =  Longnose dace

13 =  Largemouth or Spotted bass ???

14 =  Cyprinella, Spotfin or Whitetail ???

Gerald, the three streams I visited were spots from FishMap that were hits for Tuckasegee Darters, so hopefully at least one of those ends up being one.

 

Thanks for the id's, there were some slippery rocks out today, may need a new camera :(
