Micro fishing and life listing have brought a lot of very observant individuals into the native fish world. It really is great to see more anglers who just aren't satisfied with "bream" or sucker.

So dorsal fin pigmentation and 9 anal fin rays can be seen with N. hudsonius? Or are we calling this some sort of unspecified variant?

Perhaps each individual N. hudsonius is an unspecified variant?  Makes as much sense as anything else with this species.

Falling off scales if not very Cyprinella but is very common for some southern variants of N. hudsonius

BTW, when you counted anal rays, did you count the first short spine or not?

I started with the first long one but I wasn't too confident in that aspect of the ID because it was blurry back half of the fin.  More just thought it was plausible there were 9 rays and the dorsal pigment put it over the top. 

 

But twas just a good old fashioned Shortnose Shiner.

you can't make this stuff up....yet another fish ID'd years later, almost 5 to be exact.

 

and of course, ID'd as Hudsonius.  It's unbelievable lol

 

The fish in this thread is a Comely Shiner, caught in 2017.  I am 85% sure. 

 

Mouth pretty pointed, no exact anal ray count but appears to be a bunch.  Very silvery sheen.  If anyone disagrees let me know

 

I thought I'd never catch a Comely as I won't be fishing much where they're found anymore.  This was the loose end native Minnow from my days trekking out to the Delaware River.  But apparently it hasnt been a loose end for 5 years.  

 

Of course, this thread was titled "satinfin reach" .... a year or so after this thread I realized I had caught a Satinfin, also in 2017 lol
