One of the changes for this year is that harvesting blue, channel, and flathead catfish using archery tackle is legal in waters without a length limit :Mad:. This pretty much means its legal on the rivers, cause I don't know of a lake or pond that doesn't have a length limit. I think most of our waters are murky enough that the number of catfish taken with a bow would be relatively low, so I'm not sure it will have a terrible impact on things. However, its just one more step towards classifying catfish as "non-sportfish." If that would happen then that would cause a huge impact on catfish (no length limits/ creel limits). In my opinion it just kind of shows KDWP attitude toward catfish and its not "selective harvest."
