The Creek chubs were among a dozen small 1/2" fry that I netted from the
shallow margin of a
large washout below the Lake Olathe spillway. I also collected a Orange
Throat darter and 2 small
crayfish from the same location that same day in late May.
All of my Green Sunfish and most of the Longears were caught in minnow
traps baited with canned
catfood in Aug 2004 in the same area of Cedar Creek. Luke McClurg
provided me with 4 Orange
spotted and 4 Longears from Jefferson & Wabaunsee County to the west of
All of this years Longear and 52 Green Sunfish fry went to water
gardens/ponds here in the KC area.
The remaining Greens were released back into Cedar Creek-in-the same
location their parents came from
Also the adult Greens like wise.
I had 5 Longear and 3 Green nests in June and July but the Greens proved
to be much more prolific.
