Sculpins in Beaver

Recommended Posts

I caught this little guy today. I heard that once upon a time there used to be lots of them in this tailwater. I have seen them through the years, but not in overwhelming numbers. I know they are Scooby snacks for browns, but do they play any part, positively or negatively, to the overall health of the river? Moreover, are they, like frogs, indicators of a healthy aquatic environment? Left click to enlarge.


Just a neat picture I took this morining

I can tell you that it appears its a Mottled Sculpin, which is less common, but the information I have only list water temperature as something that can become critical. I have seen people treat them as trash at times, why I don't know, mental problem I guess.

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.
