Fishing Report: Colorado River waters – striper bite picking up at Lake Mohave
We have some great news form up on Lake Mohave it seems the striper bite is starting to pick up.
Our local angler Kathi Hughart (above) was out fishing on their boat and landed a nice 5.26-pound striper at 26 and 5/8 inches. She was using anchovies fairly close to the dam. She stopped in to let me know that the fishing has been OK for about a week now on Lake Mohave.
Another local angler Rocky Beria was fishing from his Sea-Doo here along the Colorado river below Davis Dam in the Nature Center area. He was using anchovies and landed a just under 4-pound striper. This fish weighed in at 3.94 pounds and was 23 5/8 inches. And yep the PWCs make great fishing boats.
We have some news from the casino area with Scott Morrison and his net buddy Frank Rodriguez. He landed a nice 11.04-pound striper at 32 1/2 inches. Scott had just purchased a glide bait and was trying it out while fishing from his boat by the casino row. The striper bite is going well — both of the Colorado River here below the Davis Dam and above the Davis Dam on Lake Mohave. There is also some smallmouth bass action along the river and on the lake with plastic producing well.
No word from the Marsh as of yet, but I am sure the largemouth bass are active along with some channel cats.
Speaking of I have heard of a few hook-ups of some catfish in the upper Big Bend area. This being said, our Community Park area should be producing a few. The evening seems to be a bit better for the catfish. No word on trout but I am getting reports that the early mornings the fish are on a feeding frenzy while dinning on the caddis fly. Hope this helps for now and thanks for all of your support. we will see you in soon to share that catch and story.
