Striper Bite is Doing Well Along The River

Colorado River - Davis Dam - Davis Dam, NV

Gordon Fiske was out fishing with his grandson Colton Frye and landed some stripers and came in to share their catch the 2 larger ones weighed in at 4.54 pounds each and were the same length also at 23 and 3/4 inches. I have to say I do see a lot of fish being close in size but these 2 were right on the same size in both weight and length. They were using anchovies and were down river a ways below the needles bridge.

The striper bite here along the Colorado River below the Davis Dam is doing well. Our weather is warming up and water levels have been up for the most part.  An update on our water levels Davis Dam has 5 gates or 5 generating stations that they can put on line or open the gates so to say. The times of day when their units are on line varies and is dependent on the demand. The demand could be the power that they sell or the water for the agriculture industry. This means when boating the river you need to watch the water levels. 

Anyway back to fishing we are blessed to have such a great season so far. our local angler Gordon Fiske was out fishing with his grandson Colton Frye and landed some stripers and came in to share their catch the 2 larger ones weighed in at 4.54 pounds each and were the same length also at 23 and 3/4 inches. I have to say I do see a lot of fish being close in size but these 2 were right on the same size in both weight and length. They were using anchovies and were down river a ways below the needles bridge. 

Up river in the big bend area our local anglers Chris Vasquez and his son Landen were out fishing  with our local martial arts instructor Ben Aleman (in the middle) (Fort Mohave Martial Arts). They were fishing on Bens boat using anchovies to land these 3 stripers the larger one at 3.36 pounds and 21 and 1/8 inches. since Bens studio has been shut down due to the pandemic they decided to take advantage of the time off and go fishing and this is a nice catch. 

Community Park is continuing to be a great spot for fishing and recreation we have a great shore line that works for both of these activities and very well. I have been getting reports that up on Lake Mohave the striper bite is starting. The coves near the power lines have been producing a few and the area near the Davis Dam is been seeing some action . That area has the fish deep and anchovies were working. 

Hope this helps for now and we will see you in soon to share that catch and story Thanks for all of your support. Now Go Catch A Fish Rusty Riviera Marina 520 Riviera Blvd. bullhead City Az. 928-763-8550
