Channel catfish to be stocked across Indiana by November

DNR_logoThis fall, the DNR will stock over 80,000 channel catfish across Indiana.

Stocked catfish will be 8-10 inches in length. District fisheries biologists determine the number of fish to be stocked by the size of the lake and management strategy. These stockings occur annually or every other year based on expected harvest rates and how many catfish are available.

Channel catfish have strong senses of smell and taste. Common methods of targeting them include cut bait, stink bait, and worms. Channel catfish can also occasionally be caught on artificial lures and minnows.
