“Shocking Flatheads”

The July 2014 issue of NEBRASKAland magazine is available on-line right now.


It is way too early in the summer to find any of the gayfeather that is pictured on the cover, but inside you will find a variety of great stories, as usual.

Of course I am going to point out a fish story on pages 42-45, “Shocking Flatheads”.  In that, NEBRASKAland editor Jeff Kurrus interviews Jordan Katt, the fisheries biologist in charge of the flathead catfish research that has been done at Branched Oak Reservoir the past few years.  That story is a great overview of that fisheries research and highlights some of the things that have been learned from it.

I do not need to add any more, but if the NEBRASKAland story piques your interest, you can read more in some of my old blog posts:
