Check your local library for a book entitled "Fishes of Tennessee"(this
title may not be exact) I have seen this book at the MTSU library. It will
have all the info you desire on fish here in Tennessee.
BTW-I kept a 55gal native tank for about a year. I netted most of the fish
from a creek in Williamson County. Largmouth bass, sunfish, darters,
crawfish, and a few different types of minnows.

Good luck
David M
