Portland area catfish?
ray:Looking to do some cat fishing this month, but I dont know where to start. Can anyone give any advice? I live in SW portland. thanks to anyone who is willing to help.
Try the tulintan river it has some good sized cats in there same with the willmete river
Are they edible?
nice question FMJ! I was wondering the same thing of the Willamette catties!
Yeah I dont know about that dam river.....lol. I herd they have some decent cats in there but havent tried yet. the river itself kind of makes me cringe..... lol
Edible in moderation.
They are ok to eat. Best cooked fried.
I would NOT eat fish from the river in the city. What sizes are good sizes in Oregon. 5#, 10#, 20#?
I've caught some Brown Bull head at night in the Tualatin, they don't get very big at all, 3-4lbs tops. Go with your trout gear if you try, you may lluck into a larger 2-4 pounder. Channell cats are a little more elusive here then people like to think and admit. When I lived in California they were abundant in all running waters.
I caught the Brown Bull heads on worms, liver, and some catfish dough (blood).
