Catfish Dream Interpretation

In general, a Catfish dream is a symbol that someone in your waking life is not what they appear to be. For some reason, they are hiding their true self from you as well as their true nature. In other words, their real intentions may not be immediately apparent.

Alternatively, a Catfish dream in which these fish are fighting their way upstream, or holding on tightly to some object as water rushes over them, signifies the dreamers’ inability to trust themselves to let go of their emotions. When you see one of these species of fish on land, then the Catfish meaning is asking you to adapt to your situation and move on to a new place.

  1. I just awoke from a dream featuring catfish. I knew it had a meaning so I came to this site for answers, and I found them. In the dream I was at a lake with some companions, one was my dad but I don’t know who the others were. I was standing by the shore and I saw many catfish swimming in the water. One of them came up to me and ‘hugged’ my foot with its body. I reached down to feel its skin. Then I walked away to a nearby house and the catfish followed me, which I thought was strange. I looked at it and the catfish had turned into a seal with the head of a puppy, and it was nodding. After that I woke up.

  2. I dreamt I was in a river. Three catfish sweet up to my front. One of them jump out towards me and I cought it with my bare hands. Took to the land but before I got there the other two were on the floor. I called my cousin to help me kill them who then use his Cutlass on them gentle.

  3. Excellent genius

    A friend dreamt of his father washing her head with a catfish.this is strange .she called me for explanation but it’s deep for me.knidly help out sir.

  4. I dreamt of me catching different types of fish hidden under the stones in a shallow water. Some were dead,but i caught two big catfish. Then called some villagers to teach them on how to set traps to get more fish. They were surprise that there are fish in such a shallow water

  5. I dreamt fighting with someone and she turned into a cat fish but still I was struggling her until she became helpless..

    My dream was, i am in the river with the cat fish playing, i suddendly came out, the catfish tried to follow despite i try avoiding it, but following

  7. Understood… But find it hard to link it to seeing my late mum going to purchase catfish which was killed and cleaned for her, and the seller discerning the right day and time to cook the fish for it to turn out well for eating.

  8. Your explanation is quite explicit and enlighening. In real life, i’m just venturing into catfish business financed by my uncle as a join venture. We are only at the planning stage, but today i dreamt about catfish in an abandoned pond without being fed for long. Not far from it i just completed the construction of my own ponds and yet to be stocked. As i was looking at this old pond, fresh water started flowing into it, then i saw beautiful catfish swimming out of the pond, moving towards my feet, even as i move my feet away they kept coming.

  9. sincerely! i have just been tongue of expression. this interpretation, was clear so much that every piece of my dream as at 13th of March this year, captured every principal word used.
    thanks, for your ability.

  10. Cool stuff, what about when the catfish is in Indian healing pools and glowing in golden light but not disturbing the waters around it as well as much larger than other catfish surrouding it… I myself was simply sitting at the waters edge observing it. Im 100 percent baffled by this one.
