Conditions : COLORADO RIVER: BELOW DAVIS DAM – Trout fishing will continue to dwindle without stocking although some holdovers will continue to be caught occasionally. The report is that the striper bite is on and lots of quality fish are being caught. CJ, Derrick and Josh sent a report of “Huge Striper in the Colorado”. This trio caught some hefty stripers, 17 lbs., 14 lbs., and 9 lbs. using Bomber Long A 7 inch jerkbaits from a boat trolling the shoreline near the Avi. At about 11 pm they had their first hit, the largest of the bunch. They even caught a 2½ pound rainbow trout. The three were impressed with the quality of fish you can pull out of the Colorado River with a little trial and error. Gary showed off his 12.52 lbs. channel cat drifting along with a stringer full of 1 pound range stripers. Kenyans caught a beautiful 5.81 striper in the Community Park area using a Sub Walk Lure.

TOPOCK GORGE- Reports of catfish and some stripers are being taken in the Gorge but the bite is slow. I have not heard much about fishing in the Gorge lately.

TOPOCK MARSH – Fishing has picked up at the marsh with the warm temps. Bass, catfish and crappie are active and feeding. Use night crawlers or spin/swim baits for bass.

COLORADO RIVER OUTLOOK (from Palo Verde to Yuma)

This area should be fair for both smallmouth bass (in the channel) and largemouth bass (in the backwaters) throughout the entire area. Channel and flathead catfish are always fair to good in this section of the Colorado River. Most of the flathead catfish will be in the 2 to 5 pound size range with an occasional fish over 30 pounds. The time for fishing for both species of catfish is in the evening to midnight.  

Colorado River (between Walter's Camp and Picacho State Park)

This section of the Colorado River is relatively remote and can only be accessed by boat from either end. Fishing is expected to be fair to good for flathead catfish with sizes over 40 pounds. The best time for fishing for both species of catfish will be in the evening to midnight. Largemouth bass and bluegill are also present in the various backwaters and slack water areas. Other species available in the main river are smallmouth bass, and striped bass.

Colorado River (between Picacho State Park and Imperial Dam

This area is expected to be fair to good for largemouth bass, channel catfish, and flathead catfish. Bass and channel catfish in excess of 5 pounds are present along with flathead catfish as large as 40 pounds. Bluegills are also present in the various backwaters and an occasional striped bass will be caught in the main river channel.

Colorado River (between Laguna and Morelos dams

This area will be fair for largemouth bass and flathead catfish. Bass in excess of 5 pounds are common and flathead catfish over 20 pounds are a good bet. In this area, accessibility to the river is dependent on the amount of water being released. Usually shallow draft boats work the best. The lower end has had some dredging work done and the larger boat will be able to get on the river in that area.
