We do have suckers throughout the the river system. Smelt do run up the river but not past any dams. Huge shad runs which come into the river system to spawn. Some will pass the few of the lower dams. I wonder how long those spawnlings hang in the river system or if they go right out to the salt. If they hang out that could be some good eats for those pike. I do want to catch one of those things. And a muskie. That has been on my list for years. Maybe someday but gotta head back your way for that one.
