The fish in your pictures is a Rhinichthys atratulus (Blacknose Dace) a Native North American fish commonly found in the creeks in your neck of the woods :)

Thanks for the ID Jim. I sort of thought the first one looked like a Heterandria but it seemed a bit too long and thin for one of them. The dace makes more sense to me.

Thanks! I thought they were Bluntnose minnows, but they do look like Blacknose Dace. I hope they don't get too big.
