I believe you will find that blues are not like perch. They will not necessarily spawn in a small lake. They require optimum conditions, extremely good habitat, and plenty of accessible partners. I know of a person who put several hundred into Guthrie Lake over a period of a few years, but none have spawned, and that was back in the mid 90's. They recently caught a 32 lb blue and a 52 pound blue out of the lake, so some of the initial stock is still there. However, when the ODW conducts a shocking program at the lake, there are no small blues. Channels may be a better bet for your lake stocking.

You have moving current in the lake?( spring fed? )if be, they just might spawn out.according to a article I read a few yrs back.,
Anyway good luck with your lake..even if they don't spawn, in a few yrs you will have one heck of a fishing hole..LOL.:smile2::smile2::wink:

I'd check with my local county agent. Here's what I found online:
"Blue catfish exhibit slower growth and lower feed conversion efficiencies than channel catfish"
