October Fishing on the Colorado at Bend has been a little slow this year but we have seen a few nice Catfish hauled in including a 30 plus pound Yellow Cat(above photo) and a 20 lb Channel Cat(below photo). We rarely see Channel’s that large but if you bait a jug line with live goldfish or perch good things happen. Some smaller cats were also caught with nightcrawlers, cut bait and livers doing the job well. With Deer season starting the fishing will have to take a back seat till January when the White Bass run but we have had reports of a few White’s caught already so we might be in for a great run this season. Local Predator Hunts have resulted in some good kills as their are some organized roundups in the area resulting in a few less coyote, fox and bobcats which is good news for farmers and ranchers. If you want to fish this fall and winter the Colorado State Park will be open weekends all through winter but they will be closing mid November during the week for deer hunts. Barefoot Fishing Camp and Sulpher Springs Camp close till the end of Deer Season starting on Oct. 31 but will reopen in January. If you plan on coming out to the area be sure to stop by Bad Bob’s Bend Store, We got Everything You Need……..Almost. Hope to see ya all soon and thanks for your interest.
