Oregon’s Native Freshwater Fish Species

Oregon’s native fish can be found in a wide diversity of habitats from large, tidal rivers to small, mountain streams to desert springs bubbly up from the ground. And, they display a range of life history strategies. We still have much to learn about these amazing creatures.

The following list contains the native fish species known to occur in Oregon. Subspecies are not listed unless that is the only representative of the species. They are displayed by taxonomic group and alphabetically sorted within each group.

Visit the Native Fish Investigations and Corvallis Research Lab websites to learn more about ongoing research.
