kahjtheundedicated Posted October 12, 2022 Share Posted October 12, 2022 Does anybody have any experience with collecting darters? I recently learned that there are some beautiful native fish in my area, and am planning on putting together a darter and shiner tank, but have never gone collecting before. The streams in question are rocky with sand and gravel bottoms with moderately fast moving water with only occasional clumps of vegetation or algae in slower sections of bends. From my research, the fish I'm interested in have stable populations, aren't protected, and can be legally collected with a standard fishing license. I plan on collecting from a creek that runs through a friends property where we have seen beautiful shiners in mind boggling numbers. So I think I'm in the clear as far as legality is concerned. I would also appreciate any tips for keeping darters and shiners in general! 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
