dwc:eventRemarksCavefish collected in deep pool to the left of the entrance (saw 3-4). We went through much of the cave, but only saw them in this hard to work pool. Went left first, passageway narrows considerably to tight crawl before opening again. Went right after but only saw sunfish. Also collected a very large Cottus, went with Matt.
