Between September and November 1986, collections of fishes were made in Weeping Water Creek in Cass and Otoe counties of southeastern Nebraska. Eighteen sampling stations yielded a total of 2,960 specimens of 19 species and five families. The most common species, in terms of numbers of individuals, were the cyprinid minnows Notropis dorsalis, N. lutrensis, N. stramineus, Pimephales promelas, Semotilus atromaculatus, and the sunfish, Lepomis cyanellus. The number of species per station varied from three to eleven. No obvious changes are evident from a survey in 1973.
