Several years ago, Hunter Hatcher and Michael Moore noted that the Clinch Dace in standardized samples were becoming more colored up each day. They literally stumbled across a small depression in a creek where they witnessed numerous Clinch Dace in breeding coloration. In these small streams, small circular pits are created by Creek Chubs and Stonerollers.
