1999) stocked channel catfish into the Yalobusha River, a relatively turbid Mississippi stream and recorded that these fish distributed themselves throughout the system, upstream and downstream. These fish tended to have body condition superior to wild fish in the system one year after stocking, suggesting that fish produced in hatcheries may be more aggressive in feeding than are wild fish. Stocking channel catfish into streams can supplement existing fisheries. However, in relatively clear water streams that support visually oriented predatory fishes, natural reproduction and recruitment of channel catfish may be limited.
