    Several weeks ago duckbill and I went up to Lake Tahoe and did a couple of vintage dives at the high altitude lake. We had a great time diving on a sunken sailboat and I made a video of our little adventure.
    Hope you enjoy!

    Terry, you asked about what type of fish that was which you two followed on the bottom. It was a sculpin, as they are pretty well distributed throughout the Pacific coastal areas in fresh water. The two most likely characters are the coastrange sculpin, Cottus aleuticus (Gilbert) and the prickly sculpin, Cottus asper (Richardson).

    I have seen numerous sculpin in both the North Umpqua River and the Clackamas River, where I currently dive. I've included two of my photos of freshwater sculpin. From the photos, and my book Freshwater Fishes of Canada, by W.B. Scott and E.J. Crossman, Bulletin 184, Fisheries Research Board of Canada, Ottawa 1973, pages 820-822, these appear to be the coastrange sculpin, Cottus aleuticus (Gilbert).

    By the way, I really enjoyed the video, Jerry.

    Thanks John for identifying that little fish. I didn't realize that there was a fresh water type of sculpin before. I happen to see another one last weekend while diving the Feather River (Oroville) in NorCal along with duckbill. It's always interesting to observe a new fish I haven't seen before after diving all these years.
