Earlier this summer I went micro-fishing in a small mountain stream in the New River drainage. I was hoping to get some clarification with these fish. I believe they are a warpaint shiner, rosyside dace, and redlip shiner respectively.Attached File  Screenshot_20171004-184847.png   1.23MB   2 downloadsAttached File  Screenshot_20171004-184854.png   1.4MB   3 downloads

Sorry, here is the third picture. I'm struggling with this whole upload limit and not being able to edit/replace old photos with smaller, resized ones. Attached File  20170703_102052-756x1008.jpg   136.15KB   2 downloads

There are some free & easy to use photo editors online that you can reduce the file size of your original pictures.  That way you'll get to post a few more pictures before you run out of space.  But, the best way to post more pictures is to become a member.  You can start your own gallery and keep all your ID's in there.  There are some great photographers in NANFA.  You have nice in-hand pictures.

3rd fish might be a saffron shiner.  What river basin?

PhotoScape is a nice free, easy editing software for resizing, brightness, color balance ..

Gerald, the New River in North Carolina/Virginia. It looks just like the saffron shiner posted in "VA/NC microfishing trip" here on the forum.
