The mucket is found in the Mississippi River drainage from New York through Wisconsin, and from Minnesota south through eastern Texas and Alabama. In the St. Lawrence drainage, it is found in tributaries from Lake Michigan to Lake Ontario.
In Michigan this species is found in rivers in the lower peninsula, as far north as the Muskegon, Cass, and Chippewa Rivers. Historically it was common on the Grand River and its drainages. The mucket was also fairly common in rivers of the Lake Erie drainage, including the Huron, Raisin, and Clinton Rivers.
