Same riffle produces Ohio lamprey and slenderhead darters. And, on one night I took sand darters in this riffle..not sure ! what they were doing there. Nice stream for Ohio...

Well I think that's enough probable cause for an investigation!

The nuances between brindled, northern and mountain (either of which I'd expect in the rock riffles) are slight. Any chance for mis-id? I've been guilty before :)

It's interesting that they took the madtoms-in-night. I wonder if they make daily migrations to other habitat to feed? Might be a representation of the habitat partitioning between these similar species.

Is the water still open down there? :)
