This topic of "where da fishes go?" is always fascinating to me. Some of the streams around here disappear in the summer, for all intents and purposes, but eventually reappear and the fish come back too. Creek Chubs, like you guys mention, seem to be the dominant or maybe even only, fish in those waters. Other streams never quite dry up yet the fishes seem to be there or not there at different times of year. (This thread ties into a current one by Juhason in that regard.) This idea of movement (migration?) in smaller fishes is fascinating. And occassionally agravating when I'm swinging a net!
Glad to hear your Almost Heaven waters are making a comeback, Moon. I was only in WV a couple years, but it got hold of me. Haven't set foot in the Mountain State for almost fifteen years but still cheer in my heart when I hear good news about her and grieve when I hear troubling things...
