National Catfish Day

Facebook

 

When you think of catfish, you think of the warm, slow moving rivers and shallow lakes of the southern United States. But people do catch them in the northwest!

 

People across the country value catfish for their great texture and flavor as a food fish. They are also farmed extensively in the southern United States. Northwest anglers do fish for them here as well.

Michelle Hitchcock Hall caught this beauty on the Snake River in Eastern Oregon on Father’s Day weekend.

By the way, the Washington State record catfish was a channel catfish weighing 36.2 pounds caught right here in Yakima at I-82 Pond #6 by Ross Kincaid on September 6th, 1999.

To this day, no one really knows how the fish got into that landlocked pond, but it still stands as the state record.

You can check on all of the state record fish catches here.
