Channel catfish may be the best kept secret of the Missouri River reservoirs!Â Lewis and Clark Lake is no exception with excellent numbers and sizes present. In 2014, channel catfish abundance was near the long term average.Â Mean length was nearly 18 inches and fish as big as 27 inches were sampled.Â In 2010,there was a strong year class produced which will likely result in increased catch rates of channel catfish in upcoming years.
