A call to fisherman or anyone who knows wild fish

Does anyone know what these fish are? I have a creek behind my house that dumps into a lake. The lake is stocked with trout for fishing every year but I don't know what else is in there. To me they look like carp of some kind.

We had a lot of rain and the creek rose pretty high. When it went back down, these guys were still here. On the lake end there's a pipe that cuts off the lake when the water's low so they're pretty much stuck here. If they're creek fish, I don't want to move them, but if they belong in the lake I could rehome them. They stay together for the most part. They're about 9 inches long I'd say?

Here's a video. The third fish has gone missing. And a couple more pics of my 'pet' visitors. :) They're adorable really.

They can get from that shallow part to deeper waters. They seem to be preferring hanging out on those rocks right in front of my house. The part of the creek that you see at 1:30 is probably 12 inches or more. Maybe there's more to eat right there? Or some reason they seem to wanna hang there. Maybe the water's warmer there too? Or maybe they're spawning. I don't really know anything about wild carp spawning. :)

Could they be an italian carp? I tried to find all the different kinds, but it is pretty hard to find. Here is a little pic. Don't mind the writing at the bottom, the image is from google.

Someone on facebook got them! White suckers. I had to rescue one of them this morning. I went out and found her stranded on the rocks. She got to the shallow end overnight and I guess she was trying to get back. She let me pick her up and put her in a bucket. I put her back on my end.
