This albino catfish isn’t a monster but it is rare enough to qualify for Picture of the Week.

It was caught last week from Del Valle Reservoir by Tom Bacciollo of Brentwood who was fishing at the dam and using chicken livers as bait. The cat weighed in at 14 pounds, making the long-lived fish even rarer.

The albino catfish come to the lake via the planting program but catching the fish is a rare occurrence because predators usually pick them off quickly because they are so visible.
