About This Fish

The Bigeye Chub is found in the Mississippi and Great Lakes drainages from Kansas to New York, including the Tennessee and Cumberland river drainages. They live in pools with aquatic vegetation in streams to medium rivers. As the common name suggests, Bigeye Chubs have big eyes. Like most other members of the genus Hybopsis, Bigeye Chubs have a barbel with taste buds at the corner of their mouth.
