Did my overnight Buffalo trip where we do more driving than fishing. Didn't do great again, and ran out of time by the time I realized how I should have been going about trying to get larger Darters and whatever else was hiding in the rocks. Also spent a lot of time trying to catch Northern Hogsuckers. I saw tons of them at all spots and pretty sure all were Hogs. Had various worms and even a piece of some water bug right in their face many times but they refused to show any interest at all.
Alas...some ID's. #1 is the usual small minnow that I hope isn't Luxilus but ends up being Luxilus. Think I got the rest but let's see.
These fish were from Cayuga Creek and Buffalo Creek.
