This species is only found in freshwater and is usually found in rivers and streams that have swift currents, although they have also been found along coastal rivers and at altitudes above 4,921 feet. This species is native to the countries of Kazakhstan, Russia, Mongolia and China. According to the ICUN Red List, the Taimen has been listed as a vulnerable species overall since 2012, but has been listed as being endangered in Mongolia as its population has decline by 50% since the 1980s.

Despite its seemingly easy-going existence, the catfish is a powerful fighter on a hook, as experienced anglers will tell you. New Mexico waters support three species of catfish: the channel, flathead, and blue, found in both rivers and reservoirs. Blue catfish are only found in Elephant Butte and Caballo Reservoirs.

Several subspecies of cutthroat trout are found in Colorado, of which three are native - the Greenback, the Rio Grande and the Colorado. The range of these fish has decreased due to a variety of habitat factors, and extensive recovery efforts are underway by the Division of Wildlife. Cutthroat trout can be distinguished from rainbows by heavier spotting toward the tail and the presence of a red slash on their "throat." Anglers may find these trout in high lakes and streams.Description: ()
Like other sunfishes, the redear has a laterally compressed or flattened body that is olive in color with an iridescent gold-green sheen that fades from the top side of the fish to yellow. The redear's side is speckled with brown spots. The operculum or gill flap cover is short, black and distinguishably tipped with red or orange along the edge. The redear's operculum edge is flexible. The fins are clear but the pectoral fin is long and pointed. The mouth is small with no teeth on the tongue. The nose of the fish is pointed. Lake trout, also known as Mackinaw, are the largest trout in North America. Mackinaws have white spots on a dark background with a deep fork in their tail. As the name suggests, these fish are found in mountain lakes and are usually in deeper water. Anglers also enjoy success with this species during the fall and spring in shallower areas and when ice-fishing.The flier is a species of sunfish which establishes fishable population in the coastal plain section of South Carolina. It has the most dorsal fin spines, usually 11-13, of any sunfish. Splake are a hybrid species of lake and brook trout with the best features of both fish. They can be difficult to distinguish as they hold characteristics from both parents. Splake have tri-colored pelvic fins like brook trout and their tails are slightly forked. Splake are found in high mountains lakes and have been used since the 1980s to thin out stunted brook trout populations. Anglers relish their large sizes (up to 18 pounds) and find success with flies, lures and bait during the summer.Another long ago introduced species, the yellow perch may be Colorado's most abundant game fish and one of the most table worthy. Yellow perch have two separate dorsal fins with large vertical dark stripes on their yellowish sides. These fish can be found in large schools and are caught by using bait or small spinners. Yellow perch are usually less than one pound, but can be found over two pounds in some waters.
