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.
