Catfishing remains excellent this week. There are still lots of big fish around to be caught. The cold front that moved in earlier this week has pushed the fish out of the main current but they have not gone far. Just small adjustments to stay on fish is sufficient. They are short biting a lot so downsize bait a bit and make sure it is threaded on the hook well to increase catch rate. Until things warm up again. It may be a good idea to sit on spots a bit longer to. 20-30 minutes.

Bait is pretty anything fresh.

River conditions remain great so now is the time to enjoy it.

Goldeyes suck because you can never find one when you need it. The best place to look is near running water where the dead water meets the current. worm under a bobber about 12-18". If that doesn't work look on breaks that have dead water pockets or the back side of snags where the current meets the broken current. sunny flat days are the best. I realize we have not had many of them lately.

I have been working the suckers hard. Thank god I have been able to keep up with the supply I need so far.
