does this fish have two distinct pectoral fins,or a single disc-like pectoral fin?it may be a sculpin also.

i think maybe shimofuri gobi, but most likely yellowfin goby.it is missing the black spot that the round goby has.shimofuri and yellowfin do inhabit that lake. they are a invasive species if so.

If you can't feed it what it needs, then release it back :/

If it's an invasive species it is probably very illegal to release it back into the waterway. Even if it was a native species I don't think you are supposed to re-release fish that have been removed from the water and taken back to your home just in case they come into contact with harmful pathogens while under your care.
