300 ‘jumbo-sized’ channel catfish stocked in Riverton ponds

    Grab your fishing pole, some bait, and head over to the Big Bend Ponds at the end of Monroe in Riverton to catch the “jumbo-sized” channel catfish that Wyoming Game and Fish Department recently stocked in ponds 5 and 6.

    The catfish are from the Wyoming Women’s Center in Lusk from their in-house aquaculture program, according to WGFD, and are 13 to 14-inches making them “jumbo-sized.” This is the first time Game and Fish has worked with the center.

    As a heads up, you might have a little fishing competition with this feathered friend who was spotted at the ponds today…
