Is it possibly a Northern Hog Sucker?

I'm not sure if you're in the range, but they look very "triangular" from
above. In the picture you can see how wide the head region is in comparison
to the tail.

Sometimes the tailfins are tipped with a reddish tint.
But I don't think its a Redhorse Sucker. It definately has the body shape of
a sculpin, I have studied cottus paulus enough to know its a relative, it has
a very slender tail and a big ol fat head.. They stay on the bottom of the
creek in the deeper parts especially.
