This is a great time to get out and try for our larger stripers and our local angler Richard Erdmann was doing just that. He went to community park and was using his favorite top water lure and landed a nice 14.64 pound striper at 34 and 3/4 inches. The Bureau of Reclamation has been cutting back on our water flow. These low releases from Davis Dam are mostly from our wet weather and also from conservation efforts down stream. So shore fishing is going great up and down the Colorado river. I have heard of some stripers in the casino area but no hook ups as of yet.

Not much word from up on Lake Mohave but with the winds starting to slow some and a bit of some warmer weather that should change soon. Your bait of choice has usually been anchovies but lures are producing some great catches. The glide baits and a few of the top water baits have been successful. I have been hearing of some large mouth action and a few smallies from up on the lake. They have been in the 3 to 6 pound range. The anglers have been doing mostly catch and release as these fish are considered to be more of a sport fish than the other types of fish available to target. I have been hearing that various plastics such as the ned rig have been working well your glide baits are also getting some success on the lake as well as the river.we are getting rainbow trout. Our recent stocking was on Wednesday at both rotary park and community park. Davis camp stocking will be when the water levels permit. they didn't dredge out their launch ramp this year and the low water releases won’t let a stocking truck get close enough to plant the trout. I do hope to see you in soon to share that catch and story thanks for your support  Now Go Catch A Fish.
