I know there's not a lot of chatter on this particular forum under this topic, but I wanted to officially make a report with the DEEP regarding the discovery of a mudpuppy in the Housatonic River. To my knowledge these are not found anywhere else in the state other than the Connecticut River and Housatonic rarely. and I've only seen a few reports of those, usually while ice fishing or bait fishing.

I've got photos which I will upload later today but the mudpuppy was found at the Bull's Bridge power plant outflow, right by the rocks where the kayak launch was installed for Portage. The specimen was approximately 10 inches long.
