mudminnows. No other fish. One very large female specimen.
Continued south down right of way no tiny tributary with minimal
flow, but long pools. Came up with a seine full of young minnows

south sides of Clark Road. Many mudminnows a tadpole, a green
sunfish, large diving beetle about 1" long. One very large male

This was kind of last minute. Hope no one feels slighted. We just
scoped out three new collecting spots - all the better for future
