Re: Topeka Shiner
Thanks for the info. Jay. By the way, how's it going? I have an
interesting tape from a locally produced PBS series "Sunflower Journeys"
that did a spot on the Topeka Shiner in Kansas. Seems that the watershed
district they are most abundant in and the Kansas DWP worked out a plan to
help both the water district and the Shiner. Pretty good little spot.
