With help from a youth volunteer, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department recently stocked a total of 300 channel catfish into the Big Bend (Rendezvous) community fishing ponds 5 & 6. The fish are considered “jumbo-sized” at 13 to 14-inches and should make great table fare and an instant summer fishery.
The catfish come from the Wyoming Women’s Center’s in-house aquaculture program. At Big Bend ponds, the fish were scooped from the tank on the truck and carried in net-fulls to each pond to be stocked. A few Game and Fish employees were on site and were assisted by a local youth.
