It's a pikeminnow/squawfish, Ray.  Alameda creek is loaded with them.  They are native.

 do they get big? Are they like a pike, hence the name?

The name pikeminnow was made up by a bunch of biologists a few years ago when they decided the name squawfish was no longer PC. They are not related to pike (esox).
So I'm packing my bags for the Misty Mountains, where the spirits go...........
