Thanks, Peep   :)

STL - You're welcome.  DN16 seems to be holding his own when Dn15 starts the bonking, but he also starts it too.

Couple pics from evening.

Question about these small fish --
Are they trout fingerlings that get stocked into this creek in spring? 
Or natural young fish that hatched during winter? 
Or a small species of fish, not trout at all?  Please help all you fish experts out there.    ???

STLbf -
Quote from: Iowa DNR
[Redacted] is stocked weekly April through October with catchable 10-12 inch Rainbow Trout.
This stream contains a naturally reproducing population of Brown Trout. In 2009, there were 526 Brown Trout per mile with fish up to 20 inches collected.
This is an estimated population and actual trout numbers will be higher.
Please be aware that parts of the stream are on private property open to public fishing. (2022)

I'd hazard to guess that the fish that MrN put on the back of DNF was most likely a small native Brown Trout.  8)   ;D
It could also have been a small White Sucker. Hard to tell from the picture.  :-\

These are the three most common fish in this reach of this Creek..

BL - I thought I saw someone on Explore mention a sucker. 

Thanks for the pic of the different kinds of fish!

Beautiful, Lisa!

Thanks to BL for the fish identification, specially the pics!  The hatchlings seem to be doing what they are supposed to do.  DNF is still feeding some fish chunks that are too big.  The babies can't gulp down food yet, only tiny bits. We learn by doing and watching!

Nice pics, Lisa!

Lisa, how are you telling the babies apart??  I put names on one pic, but am not sure.

Tussles, feedings, at noon, MrN brought DNF a fish head and put it right on her tail feathers!  It's a sucker, and a big one.
