With only a few more weeks left in Wisconsin, I'm going to try to track down a few of the northern species that won't be available in Illinois. They include northern redbelly dace, pearl dace, finescale dace, longnose dace, redside dace, central mudminnow, alewife, and several others. Of course I won't find all of them, but it would be nice to check a few off the list. First up is northen redbelly dace, which I found in a tea-stained stream coming out of Goose Lake south of I-94 by Lake Mills.
