Fishing Report: Colorado River waters
We are in trout season here along the Colorado River below Davis Dam. This time of year the federal hatchery at Willow Beach brings us the rainbow trout that are raised at the hatchery. This has been happening for a number of years. These trout provide our local and visiting anglers some great outdoor fishing for young and old.
Our local anglers, the Romero family — Alian and 7 year old son Edgar and uncle Ventura — stopped in to share the limits of trout they landed at Rotary Park. The Romeros were using nightcrawlers to bring in their limit of five each while fishing from shore. Another of our local anglers Raul Gonzales land a nice striped bass fishing along the river below Davis Dam. His fish weighed in at 7.65 pounds and was 29 1/2 inches in length.
I have been getting mixed reports from up on Lake Mohave. while some anglers are doing well others are getting skunked. When you can find that school, move in slowly and stay on them try not to spook the fish, if possible. The smallmouth bass are being landed in the 2- to 5-pound range with various top-water plugs working well.
The Topock arsh area is still a good for your largemouth and a few channel cats. This time of year, some areas are closed and only open for hunting as we are getting in water fowl season.
Hope this helps for now, and we will see you in soon to share that catch. Thanks again for all of your support.
