bullheads will live on dirt for centuries.. Channel cat need some good depth under a deep freeze to live. I really have know answer for your question but my GUESS or OPINION. Would be 6-8ft minimum..

CC have pretty much thrived in our pond for decades, I think it maxes out around 6-8ft at full pool. We don't have to worry about ice though. I don't remember it ever freezing over completely.

Your winter climate is much like mine, do your channel cats get fed during open water? and how old is that channel cat in the photo?
