About This Fish

The Silver Chub is found throughout central North America in the Gulf Coast, Mississippi River, Great Lakes, and Hudson Bay drainages, including the Mobile Basin, Tennessee, and Cumberland river drainages. They live in a variety of current in small to large rivers, reservoirs and lakes. As the common name suggests, Silver Chubs have silver coloration all over their body. Like other members of the genus Macrhybopsis, Silver Chubs have a large rounded snout and barbels with taste buds at the corners of their mouth.
