In todays Albany-Democrat Herald a photo of a young man holding a 28 pound channel catfish appeared. He said he caught it out of Waverly Lake on August 28th. I scanned the picture to upload it but it won't work. And the Herald hasn't posted the photo online yet. So anyway, ODFW told me last year that they have never stocked Timber Linn Lake, Swan Lake or Waverly Lake with channel cats. Timber Linn flows into Swan and Swan into Waverly and Waverly flows into the Willamette. A small dam on Waverly prevents fish from getting into it from downstream. So it would be easy to assume some private stocking went on there. I'll update this thread and post with the link when the photo/story appears in the Herald. Who knows how many channel cats might be in Waverly, or even Swan or Timber Linn.
