LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska Game and Parks Commission says a number of large channel catfish have been stocked in certain urban lakes and state parks. The catfish are all at least five pounds.

Daryl Bauer with the commission’s fisheries outreach program says the catfish should provide a good test for young anglers who can then release the fish for others to catch.

About 60 of the large channel catfish were placed in Lake Halleck in Papillion, and another 60 went in Bowling Lake in Lincoln. Another 30 catfish were placed in Fort Kearny State Precreation Area’s Lake No. 6.

Bauer says lakes that provide easy fishing opportunities for kids were selected for the catfish.
