The Catfish swims next to a large pond that is tucked behind it in the walnut orchard. The sculpture is at the three mile mark of Highway 32 between Hamilton City and Chico. There are many more works of art tucked away in and around Chico. To find more visit Public Art.

There was at one time a pay-to-fish catfish operation in the pond that the sculpture advertised. A recent internet search turned up indications that the business is no longer there.
