The weather is rough but the fishing is great, well for trout anyway. this time of year we do get some of the larger stripers cruising our waterways. The area near the Laughlin bridge and the Colorado River below the Davis Dam has produced some great stripped bass catches. This is a super time for shore fishing for both stripers and our rainbow trout that are planted weekly. The trout that are stocked are from the Willow Beach Hatchery. The trout that are raised there are for sport and all anglers are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy this great outdoor activity. Our local angler charley Blue was able to land his limit of rainbow trout at Rotary park. While fishing from shore and using power bait Charley landed 5 trout. He had to experiment a bit to find what was working. His fishing method was a short leader small weight #2 split shot a # 12 hook and a light twitch along the bottom that seemed to attract the trout this time. This goes to show you might have to change your style a bit to get the bite going on. If your bait is not working try your favorite spinner.

Not much word from up on Lake Mohave but I am sure when we get a break in the weather the lake should be picking up.

The Topock Marsh is a go to place for catfish this time of year water level are low but there are fish to be had. Also this time of year the wildlife refuge is a great place for our waterfowl season. So any hunters out there please stop in so we can share in your story and waterfowl (ducks, geese) catch. Hope this helps for now and we will see you in soon to share that catch. thanks for all of your support
