Fishing Report: Colorado River waters
The striper bite here along the Colorado River below the Davis Dam has slowed a bit and our trout stocking program will be up and running this week. The Willow Beach Fish Hatchery should be stocking soon, so if all goes according to plan I would look for trout stocking around this coming Tuesday (as a guess).
There are stripers out there, and our local angler Randy Brown brought in a nice 2.52-pound striper (above) that he landed fishing from his dock using his favorite swim bait. In this case, it was a Glide swimmer proved to work well. Some good news up on Lake Mohave the striper action is holding steady in various spots. This being said, you will have to move around a bit to find where they are. The coves in and around the power lines near the openings are proven hunting grounds.
Near the dam along the points have been great spots. The stripers have been feeding on the shad, so it might take a little encouragement to bring them to the boat. Our local angler Raul G. was trolling just down river from the power lines and land a couple of stripers in the 6-pound range (6.02 and 6.24, above the heavier fish was 26 1/2 inches while the lighter one was a touch longer at 27 3/4 inches. I have been hearing that anchovies are working well also.
For you anglers working the shoreline the Arizona side, Telephone cove was doing well for stripers in the 4 to 8 pound range. Hope this helps for now and we will see you in soon thanks for all of your support.
