Notice bottom left.


I puled the lamprey off and wow was that weird. He did not like that. Wiggled like crazy. Here is the mark left from the lamprey was removed.


This was in Dunn County. September 2017 the same stream I spotted a lamprey swimming on his own and netted him:


Talking to Shebs I believe this is a chestnut lampry.

What does anyone know of chestnut lampreys (it's the first I've ever heard of them)? Are they native to the upper Midwest? I hope they're not invasives. An indicator of high quality water?

Cool pictures of it. The brook trout owes you one for removing it.

According to MN DNR, there are two species of parasitic lampreys - chestnut and silver. The document I found didn't have much detail about them, but I don't think they're invasive. (Just Google mn parasitic lamprey and you should find it, linking a pdf is too much work for me on my phone right now lol)
