Redfin Shiners (Lythrurus umbratilis) from LaBarque Creek. Some were really fired up, these pics only hint at their colors.

Brook Darters (Etheostoma burri)that Stephen and I found in about 1.5" of water in a tiny headwater on the Iron County/Reynolds County line on our way home from Meramec State Park. My favorite fish of the whole trip. Thanks for the tip, Bob!

This Western Creek Chubsucker is still in his cute phase. I had forgotten there are westerns and easterns. This was actually a new species for me.

The Stippled Darters (Etheostoma punctulatum) weren't in prime color, the blue bar wasn't there, but they were still a treat. Charrette Creek, Warren County.

There were plenty of others I wish I had good pictures of. Gilt Darters, Northern Studfish, Longear Sunfish, Rainbow Darters, Banded Sculpins, and on and on and on!

Dang, those are nice fish! My biggest regret was not seeing a stippled darter. That one you took a photo of is blazing.
