Not all names are the perfect description of their owner. That’s not the case for the Orangethroat Darter. Averaging less than 2 inches in length, this orange and turquoise fish darts around many shallow waters in the Central US river basins. They make for a great tank fish and their prevalence would make you think it’s an easy catch. Best put your rod away and pick up a net, as they are true to their name. They will dart around making only the most patient net wielder successful in nabbing one. Why not catch this one piece instead – no net required!
Native to the Mississippi river and Lake Erie Basin, the Orangethroated Darter lives in muddy creeks and shallow rocky areas where it darts quickly. These beautiful tiny fish make for some great aquarium fish to show off their beauty. This fishing Romper is another great way to show off their beauty.
