Was fishing the Lower Mountain Fork River (LMF) just above Presbyterian Falls couple of weeks ago and caught a fish that was pretty interesting…
I shot an email over to the wildlife department to see what they thought… Turned out to be a pretty interesting catch. Thanks to Greg Summers, the Supervisor of the Oklahoma Fishery Research Lab, it was quickly identified as the Highland Stoneroller.
The Highland Stoneroller has been a hot topic for ichthyologists recently. Within the last year it’s been identified as a unique species and there aren’t very many images available of this species.
Not the monster brown I had been planning on catching… but still cool enough to deserve a quick post.
