I sampled Tohickon above Lake Nockamixon in 1998. Here's the list for each

Erie Avenue crossing in Quakertown:
American eel
spottail shiner
blacknose dace
golden shiner
white sucker
creek chubsucker
banded killifish
yellow bullhead
brown bullhead
redbreast sunfish
largemouth bass
tesselated darter

Bridge on Covered Bridge Road - this station included a wide, ponded
(natural) area with large boulders:
Americal eel
golden shiner
comely shiner
white sucker
yellow bullhead
redbreast sunfish
green sunfish
tesselated darter

Both sites are historic locations for bridle shiners, which is why they were
