BULLHEAD CITY–The fishing along the Colorado River remains to be a big hit among the anglers, according to Rusty Braun, owner of Riviera Marina in Bullhead City.
“It is fantastic, we have rainbow trout that have been stocked to help with the caddis fly issue. Our abatement manger Joe Isburg is doing a super job with getting us some quality fish and he is doing great at keeping the mosquitos at a minimum,” said Braun.
The stripers and channel catfish continue to be on the prowl, said Braun.
Fishing is looking good for anglers in the Topock Marsh area as the large mouth bass continue to bite. Those casting their lines in Lake Mohave may have a bit of a struggle, as the stripers are just beginning to bite.
Anglers casting their lines south of the Davis Dam will be reeling in one to three pounders.
“Watch that drag and have a good knot,” said Braun. “Always a good idea to retie after a good bite, as we are getting some larger striper coming through.”
Some of the top anglers this week were: Susan Brown shows off her limit of rainbows that she landed in the upper Big Bend area; Robert and Camille Escalera caught their fish using power bait while at Rotary Park; another local angler nabbed a 5 pound and 22 inch catfish using anchovies while fishing on Lake Mohave.
“Now that our local fishing club is getting active as our fishing is going strong we are blessed,” said Braun.
This weeks group is (not in order): Zachary Williams, Jovi Young, Arlen Boyd and Gary Regan.
“This group is actually going to different spots and doing very well,” said Braun.
The “Best in the West” Fishing Derby will be held this weekend and will be the perfect time to catch some of those trouts. The tournament is scheduled for June 23-24 in Bullhead City. For more information on times and prices, visit www.bullheadcity.com.
