Bullheads anyone? by Nebraska Game and Parks Commission

I know what some of you are thinking when you read the title to this blog post, “Bullheads? Are you nuts?”  Well, yes, I am nuts.  Seriously I am willing to bet that many of us would have to admit that sometime in our infant angler days we spent some time catching bullheads or anything else that would just bite on our hooks.  And is not that what it is all about?  Putting a line in the water and getting a bite?  Is not that what got us “hooked” in the first place?  So, do not be fish snobs and turn up your noses at bullheads; they can be fun to catch too!

In recent years we have even produced black bullheads in our state fish hatcheries for stocking in heavily-fished state recreation areas.  We stock those bullheads because there are some folks that want to catch bullheads and we hope that these bullhead stockings will be something that the kids and beginners can enjoy.  The bullheads are going to be stocked a little later than we hoped this summer because the weather has been cool all summer long and the bullheads did not grow as fast as they have in wamer summers.  This year’s stocking is scheduled for the last day in August when bullheads will be stocked at Fremont Lake #3, Louisville Lake #2A and Two Rivers Lake #7 and the Two Rivers “Carp” Lake.

There will be plenty of time yet this fall to grab the poles, some hooks and crawlers, and take the kids to these State Recreation Areas to catch some bullheads.  Keep in mind that there is a daily bag limit of 5 bullheads on the State Recreation Area waters mentioned above.  Also keep in mind that Powder Creek Reservoir, Yankee Hill Reservoir, and Cunningham Reservoir are other waters that have some good bullhead fishing right now.


What a beauty!
