Out of curiosity, are there channel catfish at Henry Hagg? I spent my early childhood in a place where they were plentiful and they're my favorite species to catch. I can't seem to find them in the Willamette Zone.
Shaun Solomon said:I’m not sure if you have seen the videos Roger, but there is actual proof of a sturgeon in Hagg, looks to be in the neighborhood of five to six feet. Right up on the dam, with panning shots of the surrounding area, enough to tell where it was shot. Several different people have seen it, and got still shots and at least two videos I have seen. It might be a solo fish, but they live a long time.
And for the purpose of clarity, bullheads ARE cats, just not channel cats. Same family, different species, like smallies and largemouth, for example. You weren’t wrong to call them cats.
I took the dog for a walk around Commonwealth Lk today, and stopped to read an info sign about fish in the lake. The park sign says that "trout, bass, panfish, and channel catfish" have been stocked in the lake at various times. They show clear pictures of trout, bass, and forked tail catfish.DOKF said:How did channel cats get into Hagg Lake? They are not native species ...
