Sander canadensis
About This Fish

The Sauger is widespread across central North America from Louisiana to Canada, including the Tennessee and Cumberland river drainages. They have been introduced widely because of their popularity as a sport fish. They live in a variety of habitats, though commonly are found in slower waters of small to large rivers. Saugers and Walleyes have silvery eyes because of a special tissue that allows them to see very well at night.
