Golden Redhorse

Moxostoma erythrurum

Golden Redhorse inhabits large rivers and large lakes, and it depends on streams with clean gravel for spawning. Its range includes watersheds of the Allegheny, Erie, Genesee, western Ontario and parts of the Erie Canal system substantially east of Rochester. Its range and frequency of catch appear to be increasing.
