Welcome to the list, Kevin. Unles you're in far eastern Oregon, I'd say
it's unlikely that you have a mottled sculpin. The mottled has a lot of
stuff written about it because it's so common in other parts of the US and
Canada. Where do you live and is there any way to take a clear photo of
that fish? If not, can you describe it? There are quite a few freshwater
sculpins in Oregon.
