The Channel Catfish is characterized by an overall muddy to green or darker colored body, showing numerous black specks or dots along his flank with a lighter to silvery underside. He has a large flat head and the customary whiskers and barbels of his family.

These fish are found in moving waters or in still waters near inflows of other water, most likely congregating at deep sloughs or holes.

Live baitfish, cutbait, crickets and earthworms make for the best natural bait, while artificials are not commonly used when targeting this fish.
