i dont encounter rainbow shiners very often in the conasauga. i can only
recall seeing them in the main body once or twice.
rainbow shiners seem to like those small spring fed feeder streams. i can
think of 2 such conasauga tribs.
i have also found a couple populations just over the tn divide but still
require about a 30 minute drive. the most intense experiences close for me are
around ft payne. 1 hour south.
of special interest to me is the documentation of rainbows from the tn
drainage. yet when speaking w/ scott m he tells me they are "verified" by only
single or 2 specimens... possible bail bucket intros. ive found good snorkeling
sites on both but have not looked below the surface as of yet.
much, much water out there!

tn shiners in their glory and frenzy can rank w/ rainbows.

spring is coming!
