Catfish Season Opens at Santee Lakes

Over 200 anglers, young and old, headed out to Santee Lakes on Saturday, April 17, for the opening of catfish season, making this the biggest catfish opening day ever.  Padre Dam had 2,000 pounds of catfish planted in Lakes 3 and 4, with more to come.  In fact, a total of 25,000 pounds of catfish is scheduled to be planted between mid-April and season’s end in October.  A number of those catfish are specially tagged and good for prizes, including cash, fishing tackle, and free fishing passes.  This year the Catfish Roundup is sponsored by Barona Resort and Casino.  Below are a few pictures from opening day.
