How To Find What Species Are Present In A Stream?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I am searching all over the web for a list, or documentation, of species present in this stream that I fish.

I know there are brown, brook, rainbow trout and perch. I have seen this fish on lists on the DEC website.

However, I have caught golden shiners and other panfish, and they are not listed. Im trying to find a list of all fish species present... Where should I look?

In MA and NH, the states I primary fish the state fish and game have maps of the majority of the body waters with other information. This additional information includes depth, clarity, and fish species. I would see if your state has similar information on their fish and game website. Otherwise, try using the local forums on this site to speak to a member with personal knowledge, they can probably help you identify whats in your water.

Lime or dynamite will usually let you know what's down there....

I'm amazed at how inaccurate the DEC/DNR listings sometimes are for fish species present in a body of water.

 

 

Tight lines,

Bob
