Abstract: A survey of the fishes from Paddy's Run Creek, tributary to the Big Miami River, and the Dry Fork of the Whitewater River in Ohio disclosed the presence of 40 species and 2 hybrids. The fauna of both streams was dominated by members of the families Cyprinidae and Centrarchidae. Two specimens of the bigeye shiner, Notropis hoops, were collected in Paddy's Run Creek and may represent the first known collection of this minnow from western Ohio in the present century. Factors which appeared to influence distribution and abundance of fishes in Paddy's Run were fluctuations in stream flow, farming practices along the stream, and industrial effluents.
