Fall fishing in Champaign County

I am thankful for fish that bite even when the weather is cold.

Smallmouth Bass (Micropterus dolomieu)

Spotted Bass (Micropterus punctulatus)

Striped Shiner (Luxilus chrysocephalus)

Creek Chub (Semotilus atromaculatus)

Spotfin Shiner (Cyprinella spiloptera)

Striped Shiner juvenile (Luxilus chrysocephalus)

Central Longear Sunfish (Lepomis megalotis megalotis)

Hornyhead Chub (Nocomis biguttatus)

Northern Hogsucker (Hypentelium nigricans)

These guys are wise to stay inside city limits where hunting is not allowed.
