Everything was taken with a 20ft seine. We sampled the lowermost road
crossing on the Salt Fork of the Red River and caught most of the fishes
there including a great haul of good sized speckled chubs (with a little
effort we got ~60 adult fish ~2 inches or so each). Only found a couple
pupfish and zebrinus. Our other site on the Salt Fork was-in-Mangum where
the river was almost dry. Lots of pupfish and zebrinus here, along with
Hybognathus placitus and Notropis bairdi as well as a few of some other
species. The other site was Turkey Creek. Caught a large number of
suckermouth minnows here, some reasonable sized ones too, maybe 3 inches
or so.
