Sauger

Sauger Image

Sander canadensis

Sauger lives in low gradient streams and large lakes. It is native to five of 18 watersheds. It appears to be gone from the Erie, Ontario, Oswego and Saint Lawrence watersheds. Since 1978 two catches have been documented from Lake Champlain. It appears to be nearly eliminated and a recovery plan has been developed.
