The sudden hot weather that arrived late last week has caused the water temperatures to rise dramatically and shocked the catfish somewhat. Fishing has been what I would call slow by my standards. Things are starting to pick up now after a week for temps to stabilize.

The best locations have been faster current or structured areas where current speed picks up over it. The active fish are usually taking the bait quickly when its presented while other fish will pick and peck at the bait before finally taking it.

Goldeye seems to be picking up steam as a good bait but goldeyes have made themselves elusive so far. Any good fresh bait is still working.

With water temperature at 73, the spawn will be kicking in any day now too.

Hey Brad, not sure how you're targeting the goldeye, but I was out a couple days ago and they were hammering a plain hook with a crawler on the bottom. I caught about 10. Also picked up an 8-9lb kittie on them.

I have not had time to chase them yet but I talk to a lot of people who have been looking for them. I have been a guiding fool this year and hoping they don't switch over before I go get some. Things will ease up here in the next week or so to go bait collecting.
