Rock bass (Ambloplites rupestris)
Striped shiner (Luxilus chrysocephalus) abundant and excellent bait for smallies in this area
Green sunfish (L. cyanellus)
Lepomis macrochirus X megalotis hybrid (I think....)
Smallmouth bass (Micropterus dolomieu) showed minimal interest in artificials but could catch them all day long on Luxilus shiners.

?Black redhorse (Moxostoma duquesnei) This fish was actually dipnetted incidentally. It is a YOY specimen I initially thought was M. erythrurum but scale count was more c/w duquesnei. Both are present here.
Stripetail darter (E. kennicotti)
Blackspotted topminnow (Fundulus olivaceus)
Bluntnose minnow (Pimephales notatus)
Creek chub (Semotilus atromaculatus)
Central stoneroller (Campostoma anomalum)

Yeah Big Creek was one of several spots. Some of these pics are from there. You've been there before?
Some reports of Big Foot in the Shawnee may be attributable to me. I used to haunt streams all over that forest system.
