I wouldn't go fishing for them unless you were going to eat them. Ugly fish, that only a mother could love. My mom used to can them, which softened the bones up. Then she would make them into patties, like salmon patties. That was all before my time though.

The suckers are passed the weir. The weir is no longer in operation. There is no such thing as a whitehorse sucker they are just white suckers.

I've always called them "longnose suckers" We catch a lot of them up north. Here's a pick of one but it's got something messed up on it's face lol. http://www.epa.gov/glnpo/image/vbig/219.jpg
