Thanks to the efforts of the BAI and IDNR catfish will be a legal species starting Jan. 1 2017. Here is the final bill summary from the Illinoos general assembly page. The governor signed the bill at the Illinois state fair in conservation world where the BAI was holding its annual free bowfishing range for visitors. Another great accomplishment for bowfishing brought to you by your BAI! The new adrule is being written but it will staye catfish will be legal wherever commercial catfish harvest exists.

In addition to adding catfish, you notice the last line in the old legislation has been struck out. This removes the statement that no other fish may be taken by bowfishing language making adding species as simple as an adrule change now. Which is good because we are currently making an effort to add paddlefish!
