Gosh, shiners are pretty washed out and I am not confident at all, but two striped shiners and a bluntnose minnow? On the flipside, I can say that both your darters are spectabile or one of the splits.

This is a different area from the darter pics I submitted earlier to fishmap. I am pretty sure those were rainbow darters if you are referring to the ones sampled near Paducah. Those were part of the Ohio River drainage in western KY. Here is a different pic than the one submitted showing the orange anal fin on one from the same spot.

The darter pics earlier in this thread are from a creek that is part of the Mississippi drainage system. They seem to be more common than rainbows in creeks connecting to the Mississippi while rainbows seem more attached to the Ohio. I rarely if ever see both coexisting in the same streams in my area.
Hope that clears things up.
