Flathead catfish action is taking off. “Flathead” Ed Wilcoxson said Dec. 3 that the water has “turned over” for the winter (warm water to the top) and this has triggered the flathead catfish to really begin feeding and fattening up for the winter. On Wednesday, in fact, we had an angler call in reporting a catch of a 40-pound flathead.

Wilcoxson said the best flathead fishing has been in the Agua Fria arm, as well as Castle Creek and Humbug. Wilcoxson, who said he fished 44 weekends on the water for flatheads this year, reported having caught an average of 25 flatheads per trip up to 40 pounds in 45 feet of water.

“They know winter’s coming up,” Wilcoxson said. “They all were full of that big, yellow fat. They’ve gone crazy the whole month now. We’re averaging 100 pounds of fish a night.”

Wilcoxson said the flathead fishing should be good another few weeks.
