Eastern Blacknose Dace

Rhinichthys atratulus


Small freshwater stream fish, about 2 to 3 inches long. They feed on all types of aquatic insect larvae, worms, and algae. Very hard to catch and see up close, as they hide under rocks and are lightning fast when disturbed. Adults tend to stay hidden, while young dace will often congregate in small schools out in the open areas of the stream.
