The Missouri River System's "Other" Fish

Sicklefin Chub

JPG-A sicklefin chub


The range of this species is generally along the lower Yellowstone, Missouri and lower Mississippi rivers with historical documentation from 13 states. Sicklefin chubs appear to prefer main channel sand/gravel areas of large, turbid and free-flowing rivers. Little Knife Bay (Lake Sakakawea), the upper Missouri River and the Yellowstone River are the only areas in North Dakota in which this species has been collected in the past four decades.
