Channel Catfish Swims Epic Journey

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department says it has documented a 415-mile journey by a channel catfish.

The agency tagged the catfish in June 2007 just below the Kendrick Diversion Dam on Clear Creek east of Sheridan.

That same fish ended up on the hook of an angler recently on the Yellowstone River near Pompey’s Pillar, Mont.

Game and Fish believes it may be the longest documented fish movement in Wyoming fish tagging history.

The fish likely traveled down the Powder River into Montana and then turned upstream in the Yellowstone.

The fish had to negotiate four irrigation diversions on its journey. It’s believed high water may have allowed it to get by most of the obstacles.
