It's hard to tell from the picture, but the body shape, location, and lack of fin coloration indicate it's a White Sucker rather than a Shorthead Redhorse. Do you have any other pictures?

We do have the Atlantic strain (species/subspecies?) of shorthead in this area (I live about an hour and a half to two hours down the road) but I agree that it looks more like a white sucker, though it's quite hard to see it well in this picture.




Let there be fire!

Maybe a trout?  Don't look like a sucker species to me. Or maybe a sm bass. Or maybe a chubsucker. Or a chub. Or a flubnucker
