Bluegill

Lepomis macrochirus

Description:

Small, striped fish swimming around in a spring. You can see how the spring is stirring up the sand in the background of the first two photos.

Habitat:

Small pool fed by a spring. I think the spring is connected to the Rainbow River next to it, allowing the fish in.

Possibly juvenile because of the marking on the sides. These lines are not that dark in adult individuals
