Actually there are 17 types of mussels found in this river and I don't think the black sand is one of them. The only reason I know that is because I live in the flood zone and a rare mussel was found when they spent 3 years on a mussel survey for part of the federal flood study. Search Blanchard River and mussels for the report and type. And if it's the rare one, I didn't purposely catch it and I gently put it back where I caught it

I have caught two clams in my life, and they think catching carp is tough.

interesting how cats (at least channels and bullheads) will jump when hooked on fly but never on gear...
