Redside Shiner

Richardsonius balteatus

The redside shiner is native to Montana west of the Divide and has been introduced into our eastern drainage, probably by bait fishermen. It likely was given its common name because red develops on its sides during the breeding season. The preferred habitat of this fish is cold, clear ponds, lakes and the slow water of streams.
