Fishing Report: Colorado River waters
Colorado River waters fishing report
The good news is we are still getting a great trout plant from the Willow Beach hatchery. Our local anglers Del Pragnell (white shirt) and his sidekick Walter Waite (dark shirt) are showing their limits of rainbow trout. They were fishing in the Community Park area using PowerBait. The other news is the striper bite is slow.
Lake Mohave report
We are getting no news of stripers here along the Colorado River or up on Lake Mohave. I have a report of some being spotted near the dam on the lake but no hook-ups as of yet. With our weather getting a little bit more comfortable, the bite should pick up. The smallmouth bass are active and running in the 1- to 3-pound range. They seem to be in pre-spawn along with the largemouth bass. I have been in contact with our city and it looks good for another Striper Derby soon. I will be keeping all informed as we get the details worked out.
Topock Marsh update
No word from the Topock Marsh area as of yet. This also should be starting up as our weather is cooperating. It’s time for some great outdoor adventures.
I know it sounds a bit dismal for fishing, but it will pick up and soon, so keep trying.
Thanks for all of your support and we will see you in soon to share that catch and story.
