Is that the river that's on the delta side of the Yazoo? I was there a
couple of weeks ago and it did NOT look inviting! Supposedly
Silver Creek is a good spot - hard to imagine with all the agriculture
about. All I got for my troubles were a couple of barked shins from
falling into beaver tunnels.

And who CARES what species of Gambusia it is? It's worthless
by definition :-) What prompted you to investigate so closely? I
suspect it's an intergrade, but I am interested in hearing your
ultimate conclusion.
