Little Miami River, OH

Last weekend Leann and I did a canoe float and camping trip on the Little Miami River, northeast of Cincinnati, OH. I'll keep the writeup brief, using pics instead. Hope you enjoy!

Nice sunny day for a canoe float.



Only one fish during the day, a spotted bass. A new lifter for Leann!

Spotted Bass (Micropterus punctulatus)


Taking a break.



If I can't catch fish hook and line, it's only a matter of time before the net comes out.



Rainbow darter (Etheostoma caeruleum)


After releasing him, he decided to hang out for a while.



Awesome campsite by the river, we were all to ourselves!



Once the sun went down, the fishing picked up. A nice ~20" channel cat.

Channel Catfish (Ictalurus punctatus)


A soft shelled turtle wanted my worm too! He was not happy with us.



And a new lifter! A northern hogsucker, caught in a fast moving shallow part of the river.

Northern Hogsucker (Hypentelium nigricans) - new hook & line species #46


And several silver redhorse.

Silver Redhorse (Moxostoma anisurum)


Fried catfish and redhorse for lunch the next day.
