Fishing Report: Colorado River waters – 39-inch striped bass
With our weather getting a bit more tolerable, our anglers are having some great outdoor fishing time. Community Park has some great shoreline. There are some nice fishing holes along this area our local angler Scott Morrison (above) landed a nice trophy fish in the lower community area. His striper weighed in at 17.84 pounds and was 39 and 1/2 inches I would say this is a little light for this size fish. They seem to not be feeding as of yet. Scott was using a swim bait to land this stripped bass.
Our local anglers Ernie Calma and son Kayden Calma landed a few striper using anchovies while fishing from Ernie’s boat in various spots. I have been hearing that the Casino area is also doing well for the stripers.
While up on Lake Mohave, your chances for stripers are better near the dam and above the power lines. The coves on the Arizona side have been a bit better — even the Arizona side telephone cove was dong OK.
Our federal Willow Beach hatchery raises these endangered species. Anyway. the lake has to be lowered to accomplish this task. The water level should be up by the first part of November.
Not much word from the marsh this time, but the fishing should be fair this time of year for largemouth bass and a few channel catfish. Our rainbow trout will be here soon as the hatchery will resume its yearly stocking program. So far looks like the second week in October.
We will keep you posted as we get closer. Hope this helps for now and we will wee you in soon thanks for all for your support.
