I also thought it might have been a Dixie Chub but the lateral line scale count was too high

I have other pictures and video... what differences are there between a River Chub and Creek Chub that I could look for to figure it out?

Creek Chubs have a black spot at the base of the dorsal fin, and 47-65 lateral line scales. River Chubs have 37-43 lateral line scales. As far as I know, the only part of Alabama that has River Chubs is the Tennessee River drainage
