    Looks like an albino channel to me. I've only caught them in privately stocked waters. Some State Wildlife Departments will not purchase albinos for stocking purposes because of low survival rate.

    yeah it's a channel. it looks like it's almost albino but not entirely...kinda wierd actually. the albino ones i've caught are entirely white with less of that yellow tint that yours has.

    Just thinking out loud here, but I'm wondering if it is some kind of hybrid channel. Doesn't quite fit the white, Think the heads are bigger on them. At least around here the heads are a lot bigger.
