Creek Chub

Semotilus atromaculatus

Creek Chub lives in medium-sized streams and upland lakes and is tolerant of degraded environments. Its native range extends through all watersheds, except not to areas where it is found at higher elevations of the Adirondacks. Also, it is still absent from the part of the Long Island watershed east of the mainland.
