I went fishing today and caught some natives with a net.. I'm still trying to catch the bigger fish like pike, muskies, bass etc.. I'll be adding to this thread as I go.

Location: Little Miami River, Cincinnati, Ohio

The River at its deepest is waist-chest deep.

One of its tributary

Not exactly sure what this is.. There are lots of shiners, chuds, minnows that look the same. I'm going to guess and say BluntNose Minnow (Pimephales notatus)

Image
Johnny Darter (Etheostoma nigrum)
Still trying to find the more colorful darters like peacock.

I found a few new species... No luck on the colorful darters though.. I should try rivers closer to Indiana.

These guys are bottom feeders I believe.. The position of the mouth gives it away.

Central Stoneroller (Campostoma anomalum)

Image
Silverjaw Minnow (Notropis buccata)

Image
Easten Box Turtle (Terrapene carolina)


Image
Blanchard's Cricket Frog (Acris crepitans blanchardi). It's about an inch & a half long.

Image
And tomatoes growing wild.. I had to give it a taste. It was alright.. I expected it to taste better like out of my garden.

Ok.. I think this is the last batch.. Right after school, I quickly drove by and dove into the river. It was warm and I know the cold will be here soon (tomorrow).

No Fish this time but I hit a batch of marshy area with plenty of lovely aquatic plants... A lot of it is unidentified. If you know what they are, let me know.

Yes, I'm IN the river for this shot. Anything for art & science.

Yeah, I would love a native tank one day but I have to limit my MTS.
