    Google says these are the local catfish of the snake river. All seem way to big for a home aquarium

    A bullhead catfish,max size" around" 16 inches.You can tell the difference betwween the species as bullheads have flattened edges to the tail and the others have forked tails.(channel catfish,blues)

    I would not put any wild caught fish in my aquarium without some kind of quarantine for a time and none at all unless I knew what it was. Wild caught can be diseased with internal and external parasites, bacterial infections, etc.

    It is no doubt a bullhead (Ameiurus sp.) of some sort. Likely either a yellow or a black bullhead - not a channel, blue, or flathead. The best way to distinguish what kind of bullhead you have is to look at the chin barbels. If the chin barbels are light or white then you have a yellow bullhead (A. natalis), and if they are black or darkly pigmented then you have a black bullhead (A. melas).

    Thanks for the help. I think I am going to take him to the lake and let him lose. my turtles and him dont seem to like sharing the tank. it was cool to see him swim around in there.

    looks like a brown/yellow bullhead, they're all over north america, but generally too large for average home aquaria
    If a fish splashes in the tank, and no one is around to hear it? does it make a sound?....:D
