I feel that frustration. So many minnow species fit the description "cigar-shaped, golden-brown on top, a dark-ish band running back along the side, cream colored on the belly; fins may be tinted some color."
Sometimes it's hard to tell the various Notropis shiners apart unless they're in full spawning coloration (and even then, you get look-alikes!). Let alone if a fish is scared, sick, or just feeling shy and retiring their colors can fade out and look indistinct. Then you have some widespread species that are a little variable from place to place.
There really should be a full-color guide just to these guys.
