Video of Miciah micro fishing Government Ditch near Peru, Indiana with wax worms. Species of micro fish caught include: bluntnose minnow, striped shiner, and creek chub. It was difficult to find clear streams for micro fishing during this trip because of recent heavy rain. Government Ditch, unlike other small creek in the area, drained a very small region and clears up quickly after rain. Also, this stream originates in an air force base and therefore contains less sediment run-off from agricultural lands such as corn and soybeans that do little to prevent washing.
