    Look at eastern water snake or striped water snake. I’m positive it isn’t a rat snake.

    @Coyote Alright thanks. I had looked on the TWRA snakes page and browsed around, but I think I’ll take better pictures of the catch next time for easier ID.

    I capture and remove snakes for people, including rattlesnakes. Every one is in my profile. I also watch a lot of snake videos on YouTube so I’m pretty good at identifying eastern snakes even if I live in Nevada.

    Yup, I'd say northern water snake. Quite harmless but can be grumpy.
