Freshwater mussels

We've all seen the discarded shells of fresh-water mussels that live in the sandy bottom of the lake but until this week I hadn't seen a living mussel. What tipped me off to the one I spotted in front of my property was a furrow in the sand. It was easy to follow it to the mussel that was plowing through the sand on the bottom. I'm going to take a wild guess and say that it is Eastern elliptio. Zone 1, grid 3531. Here are a couple of views.

Final check on this beautiful day.

Sept. 25 Zone 2, 3625, 3586, 3587, 3546 and 3547. All is good, could not do the others as water level low can't get near the shore. Does anyone know what the schedule is for lowering the level and how
