☀️…this was only the 2nd time ever that I explored and fished the Tinker Creek in Roanoke, Virginia. My first ever fishing session there was earlier this year — on January 16th, 2020. If you missed that EPF episode, here is the hyperlink for you to catch up:
☀️…Previously, I mentioned that the Tinker Creek had a horrible chemical spill that killed close to 40.000 fishes in the Creek — many of them native species.

☀️…The Roanoke Darter is a species of the Percina genus; same as the Chainback Darter (Percina navisense). It is a native species to the United States of America, endemic only to Virginia and the northern portion of North Carolina.
