New Guy. Catfish ID?
Hey folks, Recently stumbled across roughfish as I've found myself fly fishing a lot more this spring and have to say I love this place. The life list section, the contests. Everything is great. Regarding the life list, I was hoping someone could confirm the ID on this catfish I caught while fly fishing back in March. I'm leaning Blue, but want to confirm before I add it to my life list. https://flic.kr/p/2iJcikq Thank you in advance. In time, I hope to be able to contribute to this site as much as I've gained.

Welcome!

I'd agree with blue.  Anal fin shape looks like for a Blue to me, I didn't count rays but looks to be too long to be a Channel

Thanks, Tony!  I meant to add

Thanks, Tony!  I meant to add that rays counted out as Blue, but I never trust myself counting rays in poor photos like this.

I appreciate the ID.
