The fishing here along the Colorado River especially below the Davis Dam is proving to be producing some great catches. We have some super striper activity and lets add a few rainbow trout to that mix. Our local anglers and a few visiting ones are having a blast. Our two local anglers and a bit on the clowning side Tom Gallant and side kick Jerry Tomlinson are showing off their catch they brought. They were fishing up above the casino area from Toms boat using anchovies to land this string of stripers. This is a great size and most common up and down the river. However not a rule as Greg Magruder is showing off his 9.24 pound stripper at 30 and 5/8 inches. He was fishing from shore using anchovies on the Nevada side above the Avi bridge. Lets add a nice catch of rainbow trout in the mix. Thomas Giambalvo from ft Mohave was using power bait while fishing from shore on the Nevada side near the casino's.

I have been getting some reports that Community park was producing a few rainbow trout also. This area is a great spot for all sorts of recreation but a super spot for fishing. Up on lake Mohave the striper bite is For now the large mouth bass and the small mouth bass are active and anglers are having some success using plastics. the small mouth bass are running in the 3 plus pound range. the ned rigs were working well with the peanut butter jelly color doing great.

The marsh has been a bit quite and again that will pick up as the bass are out of spawn mode and should be hunting for food. Hope this helps some for now and we sill see you in soon to share that catch and stories.
