- FALL'S CLASSIC. Deeter, Kirk // Field & Stream;Sep2013, Vol. 118 Issue 5, p44
The article offers some ways for fishing a Muddler Minnow such as applying a little grease, then casting it downstream at a 45-degree angle and using a sink-tip fly line to get the fly a foot or two under the surface.
- A Narrow Hybrid Zone Between Two Cottus Species in Wills Creek, Potomac Drainage. Kinziger, A.P.; Raesly, R.L. // Journal of Heredity;Jul/Aug2001, Vol. 92 Issue 4, p309
Provides information on a study which described a narrow hybrid zone between the mottled sculpin and the Blue Ridge sculpin species in Wills Creek, Potomac Drainage. Hypothesis on the origin of the syntopic populations of the species; Methodology used; Results and discussion.
- Early Life-history and Conservation Status of Venustaconcha ellipsiformis (Bivalvia, Unionidae) in Minnesota. Allen, Daniel C.; Sietman, Bernard E.; Kelner, Daniel E.; Hove, Mack C.; Kurth, Jennifer E.; Davis, J. Mike; Weiss, Jeffery L.; Hornbach, Daniel J. // American Midland Naturalist;Jan2007, Vol. 157 Issue 1, p74
The ellipse, Venustaconcha ellipsiformis (Bivalvia: Unionidae), was first recorded in Minnesota from the Straight River in 1987, but we knew little of its distribution in the state, brooding behavior, glochidial host fish relationships or status. To examine these questions, we followed standard...
- Demographic Characteristics of Female Mottled Sculpin, Cottus Bairdi, in the Coweeta Creek Drainage, North Carolina. Grossman, Gary D.; McDaniel, Kathleen; Ratajczak Jr, Robert E. // Environmental Biology of Fishes;Mar2002, Vol. 63 Issue 3, p299
We quantified: (1) growth rate, (2) length-mass relationships, (3) size- and age-specific fecundity, (4) egg size-frequencies, and (5) size- and age-specific egg diameter relationships for reproductively active female C. bairdi from one of the southern-most extant populations of this species...
- Lateral line stimulation patterns and prey orienting behavior in the Lake Michigan mottled sculpin ( Cottus bairdi). Coombs, Sheryl; Patton, Paul // Journal of Comparative Physiology A: Neuroethology, Sensory, Neu;Mar2009, Vol. 195 Issue 3, p279
Information contained in the spatial excitation pattern along arrayed sensors in the lateral line system of Lake Michigan mottled sculpin, as well as other surface-feeding fish and amphibians, is thought to play a fundamental role in guiding prey-orienting behaviors. However, the way in which...
- bullhead:. Gough, Robert E. // Glossary of Vital Terms for the Home Gardener;1993, p18
A definition of the term "bullhead," is presented. It refers to a malformed rose flower wherein the center petals are short and the flower blunt.
- Factors Affecting Allopatric and Sympatric Occurrence of Two Sculpin Species across a Rocky Mountain Watershed. Quist, Michael C.; Hubert, Wayne A.; Isaak, Daniel J. // Copeia;2004, Vol. 2004 Issue 3, p617
We assessed factors related to the occurrence of allopatric and sympatric Paiute Sculpin (Cottus beldingi) and Mottled Sculpin (Cottus bairdi) in the Salt River watershed of Wyoming and Idaho, 1996-1997. Sympatric occurrences of Paiute Sculpin and Mottled Sculpin were found in downstream...
- TIGHTLINES. Helm, Christopher; Mowry, Richard D.; Ritchie, Bill; Hauch, Byron; Deluccia, Todd // Fly Fisherman;Mar2007, Vol. 38 Issue 3, p6
Several letters to the editor are presented in response to articles published in previous issues including "The Muddler Evolution," in the February 2007 issue, "The Hybrid Frontier," in the December 2006 issue, and an article on Root River of Des Moines, Iowa, published in the December 2006 issue.
- The Effects of Embeddedness on the Seasonal Feeding of Mottled Sculpin. MCGINLEY, EDWARD J.; RAESLY, RICHARD L.; SEDDON, WILLIAM L. // American Midland Naturalist;Oct2013, Vol. 170 Issue 2, p213
Excess sediment in streams (measured as embeddedness), whether from natural or anthropogenic sources, has adverse effects on the biota that inhabit these systems. Aquatic macroinvertebrates exhibit reductions in diversity and abundance, which in turn leads to a reduction in the availability and...
