About This Fish

The Silver Redhorse is found in mid and north-central North America in the Mississippi River, Great Lakes-St. Lawrence, and Hudson Bay drainages from Alabama to Alberta, including the Tennessee and Cumberland river drainages. They live in deep pools of large creeks and rivers. As the common name suggests, Silver Redhorses have a silver coloration on its head and body. Like other Redhorses, Silver Redhorses have large lips and a mouth that can extend downward for feeding on the substrate.
