I was out today and caught this shiner and another minnow below. Is the first one a silver or brookside? I don't think it's an emerald as those aren't listed in the Olentangy river fish diversity list by ODNR. Is the second fish a stoneroller?
Anyhow, the river has dropped down to it's normal shallow level and I think everything moved out into deeper pools where it won't freeze as I was in the same spot where last week I caught over a dozen darters and 35 fry. All I caught today were these two fish and found a complete ladies fishing rod and reel. The rod seems to be perfect after I scrubbed all of the slime and algae off of it. The reel? It's hosed. Been in the river at least a year.
