Below the Davis Dam along the Colorado River we are having a great mix of fish to target. Near Davis Camp Randy Young was fishing for stripers and landed a carp. He was fishing from shore and using anchovies. This is a favorite bait for our area and catches a lot of fish. One thing about anchovies is that you never know what you will bring in! Anglers have a good chance of catching a striped bass but you might catch a catfish or a carp, every now and then you can even get a rainbow using anchoives. Our local angler Mike Andrews was fishing in the Big Bend area from shore and landed a 10.58 pound striper at 35 and 1/2 inches. This is a little light for a fish of this length. The stripers are running mostly in the 1 to 3 pound range with these fish moving in schools the smaller fish seem to get to your bait first. Doug Songer is holding a 1.2 pound striper at 15 inches this size makes a great fish fry the filet out easy with your limit at 10 for stripers this is a great pan size fish. But make sure you have a good knot and have your drag set because there are some larger fish in the mix.
