Fallfish

Fallfish

Semotilus corporalis

Fallfish inhabits medium-sized and larger streams and is often associated with sandy bottoms. It ranges through all the Atlantic slope watersheds and only part of the Great Lakes and Saint Lawrence watersheds, generally east of the Genesee River. In the narrow band with tributaries along the south shore of Lake Ontario, the range extends not that far west, but only to the Oswego River. They are non-native in upland Adirondack lakes and streams, and in western NY, they have become established in upper Tonawanda Creek.
