Each year, Sloans Lake is stocked with about 5,000 catchable fish, but it’s been years since they’ve stocked any catfish. Recently, so many anglers have been requesting them, Wyoming Game & Fish has stocked Sloans Lake with about a thousand Channel Catfish and now they are up to a catchable size of 10 – 12” and about a 1/2 lb. each.

To the tune of The Andy Griffith Show theme:

 Well, now, take down your fishin' pole and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,

We may not get a bite all day, but don't you rush away.

What a great place to rest your bones and mighty fine for skippin' stones,
You'll feel fresh as a lemonade, a-settin' in the shade.

Whether it's hot, whether it's cool, oh what a spot for whistlin' like a fool.

What a fine day to take a stroll and wander by The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day.

We'll have no need to call the roll when we get to The Fishin' Hole,
There'll be you, me, and Old Dog Trey, to doodle time away.

If we don't hook a perch or bass, we'll cool our toes in dewy grass,
Or else pull up a weed to chaw, and maybe set and jaw.

Hangin' around, takin' our ease, watchin' that hound a-scratchin' at his fleas.

Come on, take down your fishin' pole and meet me at The Fishin' Hole,
I can't think of a better way to pass the time o' day.

Now, where’s that corn meal?
