Chub Assistance
<p>I saw that Ben and Scott think Marvelnurse&#39;s &quot;creek chub&quot; may possibly be a river chub or at least not a creek chub. I am no expert at this and had only an iphone to take pictures. Can anyone shed some light with a definitive answer? Is river chub or a different chub popular consensus? I&#39;m going to have to scrutinize my fish more often now, familiar fish may not be what they seem!</p> <p><img alt="" src="http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx16/deftik/Koris1stEverCreekChub7inTunkhannockCreek8-7-2012_zpsafc9f5c2.jpg" /><img alt="" src="http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx16/deftik/Koris1stEverCreekChub7inTunkhannockCreek8-7-20128_zpsf6737645.jpg" /><img alt="" src="http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx16/deftik/Koris1stEverCreekChub7inTunkhannockCreek8-7-20127_zps8fd8b760.jpg" /><img alt="" src="http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx16/deftik/Koris1stEverCreekChub7inTunkhannockCreek8-7-20126_zps92da68ec.jpg" /><img alt="" src="http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx16/deftik/Koris1stEverCreekChub7inTunkhannockCreek8-7-20124_zps2526f531.jpg" /><img alt="" src="http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx16/deftik/Koris1stEverCreekChub7inTunkhannockCreek8-7-20122_zps43969e9c.jpg" /><img alt="" src="http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx16/deftik/1stCreekChubApprox7inTunkhannockCreek8-7-20126_zpsaf74a940.jpg" /><img alt="" src="http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx16/deftik/1stCreekChubApprox7inTunkhannockCreek8-7-20123_zpsc1f22bb4.jpg" /><img alt="" src="http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx16/deftik/1stCreekChubApprox7inTunkhannockCreek8-7-20127_zps1b47dbb1.jpg" /><img alt="" src="http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx16/deftik/1stCreekChubApprox7inTunkhannockCreek8-7-20122_zps9a530a32.jpg" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>

Certainly look like rivers to me, but you'll probably want a more expert opinion than mine on this one! Nice catches!

You guys in Minnesota, if you want river chubs, they make up about half the fishy biomass in the upper Guest River. Roadtrip!

I think I got the hang of this....so that fish is positively a River chub, this one below is a Creek chub, correct?

Thanks everyone and Ben and

Thanks everyone and Ben and Scott for pointing this out! Some people may not like it, but I think getting your lifelist scrutinized by people who know and care is one of the best features of this site (although probably not intended)! Species 82! for me :)
