Tennessee Shiners and River Chub Spawning

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Description

Many of the fish seen here are normally plain in coloration most of the year, but become very vivid reds, purples, and other bright colors to attract a mate. This spawning behavior typically occurs between April through July and can be readily observed in streams such as the Little River and Little Pigeon River in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
