AbstractThe Pit River and its tributary streams were surveyed from July to September 1974 to determine the range, relative abundance and certain aspects of life history of the rough sculpin, Cottus asperrimus. The rough sculpin was found in approximately 80 km of stream, including Pit River above and below Pit River Falls, Fall River and Hat Creek. It ranged from rare to abundant at 19 sample sites where it was collected. The life history of C. asperrimus is similar to other Pacific slope freshwater sculpins. The extremely small range of this species and its rare occurrence within part of that range justify its continued status as rare.
