A Day in the Field: Bartlett Flathead Catfish Survey
The Arizona Game and Fish Department conducted their annual Flathead Catfish electrofishing survey at Bartlett Lake September 6th through September 8th. We caught 167 Flathead Catfish between 3.5 inches and 40 inches. A majority of the fish falling between 10-25 inches in length. All the catfish were weighed, measured, tagged and released unharmed during the three day survey. The largest Flathead Catfish weighed in at just over 34 pounds. The Department will continue to monitor the Flathead Catfish population in Bartlett Lake on an annual basis.
