The Colorado River is very low and with the White Bass run about done you would think the fishing would not be too good but SURPRISE !! Yes fish are being caught as the ones in these photo’s prove. Good reports from the Colorado Bend State Park for White Bass have been slim but there have been some still being caught on minnows and light weight jiggs grey or white mostly. Now the catfish have started getting very active and we’ve seen Yellows, Blues and Channel at the store including a 42 lb fish. Now cut bait, minnows, night crawlers and stink bait have been working well but for the big Yellows you will need a trot line baited with perch or goldfish. It should only get better in May (it usually does) and if we get some rain it might be FANTASTIC!! What ya waiting for? Stop wishing and come on out Fishing at the Bend and don’t forget to stop at Bad Bob’s Bend Store….We got Everything you need ….Almost! Hope to be taking your picture soon.
Thanks for your interest,
Here’s a look at some of the fish hauled in the past week from the Colorado River at Bend. These were caught at the Colorado Bend State Park and artificial gigs in chartreuse, white and red & white seem to be the best thing to use. Minnows and nightcrawlers have also been used with good results as well. The white bass and crappie are in the beginning of their run and should be moving up to Sulpher Springs and Barefoot Fishing Camps soon as it appears to be a banner year for the bass run. If you’ve been feeling the fishing fever you need to quit wishing and go fishing, the Colorado River is the place to be. When you come out don’t forget to stop by Bad Bob’s Bend Store, we got everything you need….Almost! Bring us your stringer of fish and we’ll put your picture on the next report. Thanks for looking at our site and we hope to see you soon.
