Hybrid catfish are around 12" and most should exceed 15" in 2015. Largemouth and Spotted Bass Good 10-22 inches Crankbaits and jigs on rocks and in water willow have proven successful for bass anglers. There have even been several reports of bass anglers hooking into big flathead catfish using this approach. Crappie Poor 8-14 inches Crappie fishing has been slow. Some anglers are having luck off the bridge. General Comments Both channel catfish and hybrid catfish are present. Hybrid catfish can be identified by a vertical brand behind their right pectoral fin under their dorsal fin. Channel catfish stocked in 2013 can be identified by a similar vertical mark except behind their left pectoral fin. Both species have their adipose fin clipped. Harvest regulations for channel catfish, blue catfish, and their hybrids in Wilson County State Fishing Lake include a 15" minimum length limit and a five fish daily creel. Both maintained boat ramps are currently usable. A bathymetric map is available for Wilson State Fishing Lake.
