Posted a pic of a frog in me earlier reply, but took the time to upload a video this morning. I was fishing the local lake last spring and was at the deep hole (old rock quarry) that is the start of the creek that flows from the lake. This hole is deep and the variety of aquatic life in it is sometimes amazing. I saw a frog swimming against the strongest current that enters the hole from the spillway (guess frogs aren't all that smart) and laid down my rod and watched it (and took pics) for several minutes. It would get close, pause the swimming action, and be swept back out several feet, then resume the effort to reach solid ground. It finally made it to a small rock ledge, climbed up, rested for a while, then made it's way further upstream to get to the "falls" that blocked it from going any further. When I finally left for the day it was still setting there.

video link - (not sure why it won't play but if you click the title at the top it opens the photobucket page)
Can anyone help me get it to open on this link?

From Granada Park in Arizona here is the mystery fish. Not sure what it is, maybe some type of cichlid but fought good and loved greenie weenie flies.

That's a really cool looking fish. Maybe if you have a good pet store around there, you can take the photo in and find out what it is. I think Cichlid of some kind is a really good bet. I'd have been tempted to get it to an aquarium. Pretty fish.

Looks a lot like a Rio Grande Cichlid. I would venture to guess female as well.

These fish were plentiful there. I checked on line and it does look a lot like the Rio Grande cichlid. Males have a forehead so I also think it's a female which was getting ready to spawn. Too bad I moved to CA so no chance to fish Granada anymore, I use to work a block from there so for around two years I fly fished it every single day during my lunch break...I caught a lotta fish and I lost a lotta weight HAHA.
