National Catfish Day

National Catfish Day



When : Always June 25th

It's National Catfish Day. It's a day to enjoy some tasty, fried catfish. Or, enjoy catfish cooked to your favorite recipe......yummy.

Guess who said: "More and more Americans are discovering a uniquely American food delicacy -- farm-raised catfish." For the author, read on below to the "Origin of National Catfish Day".



You should have no doubt what to do today. Enjoy a plateful of catfish, cooked anyway you want. Chances are, you will eat farm raised catfish, which supplies the vast majority of catfish to the U.S. market. But, wouldn't it be much more fun to fish in the morning, and catch the catfish you will eat?





The Origin of National Catfish Day:

Yes, today is truely a National day!

On June 25, 1987, President Ronald Reagan began a presidential proclamation with the words "More and more Americans are discovering a uniquely American food delicacy farm-raised catfish."

    I miss our pond back in Missouri. We could walk down the hill and catch a catfish for dinner. (or bass, crappie or bluegill)
