Can catfish be trapped?
According to the historical stocking records, adult and juvenile channel cats were stocked in ponds around the Boise area from 2009 to 2011. The records don't show any stocking for 2012 onward except for Lake Lowell. Was the channel catfish stocking program abandoned, and if so why?
Are there any waters in southeast Idaho that have catch able cats in them?
I have only caught catfish out of Park Center pond (Average ~2-3lbs) and near Brownlee Reservoir off of the shore (Average ~2-4lbs). I really want to catch some bigger cats this year. I have not had any luck on the Snake river at Swan Falls or Snake River near Homedale fishing by the boat launch. I have heard of people pulling in bigger cats (10+lbs) from Swan Falls... are they doing overnights there to do this? Peak hours when I have caught 6 cats in a night were from 10p-4a.
There seems to be conflicting information and I have never seen someone catch one. Did they not survive?
What kind of Bullhead Catfish exists in Medicine Lake in Medimont, Idaho?(yellow, brown, black, etc.) Are they the species that is very hardy in dug out farm ponds? How deep does a pond have to be for these catfish to survive? What do they do when farm ponds dry up? I'm doing a paper in Speech class on Bullhead Catfish. Thanks!
I moved to twin falls from Caldwell. Well I thought fishing the snake here would be just like home but no.. I have been trying for two months now to find a spot where I can caught some catfish... I hope you can help me with this
I know in some states, using any part of a game fish as bait is illegal. I also know that trout must be killed when removed from the water where they were harvested. I just hate wasting the head and tails of trout carcasses if I could be using them to catch catfish. Thank you.
What is the size limit for yellow catfish at swan falls.
