Ozark sculpin

The Ozark sculpin lives in the demersal, freshwater environment.

Two species, southern redbelly dace and Ozark sculpin, were collected at the fringe or outside of their normal distribution. One southern redbelly dace was collected in 1996 in the small fourth order Clark Fork, a tributary to South Moreau Creek. More

Ozark sculpin (Cottus hypselurus) has a more limited range and more specific habitat requirements. More

streamer in particular, our own Jim Mengle’s Ozark Sculpin has been creating plenty of scuttlebutt. The Baxter Bulletin featured the fly on October 4 for Conclave, with a great photo, but strangely leaving out Jim’s name. More
