That looks like a Horynhead Chub to me

I concur with Maurer. Definitely looks like a hornyhead; a dorsal dot would confirm a positive ID gor Creek

To be a creek chub it has to have 49+ lateral line scales

Thanks guys. I’m afraid on chubs...if it looks like a chub I’m probably going to post it as a creek chub. I’ll make an effort to actually id one in the future

Just make sure you take a pic of the dorsal. If it has a dot, 100% creek chub. Josh Knuth made a good post on ID'ing between the two last year
