I spent last Friday at the Roaring River Trout Park in southwest Missouri with the plan to pick up the species I caught there in April only on a Killer Bugger this time. I did not get a stone roller like I'd hoped but I caught lots of Duskystripe Shiners. In fact that's almost all I caught. There was some color variation between individuals and I hoped I might have more than one species but the folks at the nature center assured me that all my pictures were duskystripes and that the river was just full of them.
