Conditions : LAKE HAVASU: Angler report -- Kathy B.: Nice blue channel catfish caught Aug. 28 at Lake Havasu near the Chalk Cliffs. Caught about 9 a.m. on cut anchovies. Weight was 15-pounds, 4-ounces, length unknown. This was Kathy's largest catfish ever.

Previously, John Galbearth of Bass Tackle Masters reported that stripers are boiling in the morning and evening – anywhere from 6-9:30 a.m., and then from 4-7 p.m. Most activity is at the main, Winsor basin and on the south side of the island going into California Bay.

Bass fishing for largemouth bass has been fair to good. A lot of choked-out weeds are in coves because of the heat, so anglers will be looking to throw mostly buzz baits, frogs, Senkos or a slowly-falling bait like a Hula grub, working weedlines and weed edges.

Smallmouth bass fishing has been fair. With the unfavorable high water temperatures, smallies are deep on submerged grass in 12-15 feet of water. A lot of times during the early mornings, anglers can see boils and catch smallies on the outlying edges of the striper boils. Otherwise, smallmouth fishing has been pretty dead during the daytime, Galbearth said.

Redear sunfish action has been marginal. The bigger redears are over deeper grass flats. Otherwise, redear in the 1-pound class can be caught in fairly shallow water.

Catfish action is crazy, Galbearth said. Tons of channel catfish are cruising around; even bass anglers are catching mostly catfish in coves. Galbearth reported one angler recently catching a 15-pound channel catfish on a crankbait. Night-fishing for flathead catfish, using bluegill as bait, also has been productive for some anglers.
