Default Paint Rock River

A while back I hiked down into the Walls of Jericho area at the headwaters of the Paint Rock River in Jackson County, Alabama, my homeland. I hoped to catch some smallmouth up there. Didn't see the first bass, but I caught quite a few strange fish that I've never seen before. They looked like a mix between a carp and a shiner and were pretty big in some cases, maybe a couple pounds. Fought like a bass, most even jumped a few times. Ugly critters, but endearing in the way any fish you catch usually is. I didn't have a camera with me, or I would post a shot of one. I caught them all on small wooly buggers. Anyone know what these things might have been? I figure it was some sort of endangered fish species that I probably helped along the path to extinction by damaging their slime coats or some such thing.
