Default lake levels...for catfishing

Stopped by Barr Lake this morning (the 8th of June) and it was still very high...up into the cottonwoods,* which makes shore fishing tough.* has anyone fished Boyd recently?* wheres the best access for cats on shore?* Ive only fished it once, and that was from a boat a long time ago...i was thinking about hitting it for cats this weekend....any info would help.

Rottal if your in Loveland you might want to try Bodecker for cats also, it might be good.

Didnt bodecker dry up a few years back? It might be good for small cats if they put them back in there.

I cant recall if ive fished Boedecker before...ill have to take a look at a map. I lose track...or maybe its just bad memory, which is more likely.

As The Mad Catter said Boedecker dried up a few years back and from what I hear is finally back to near normal levels, if there are cats to be caught they are probably fairly small to average.

Its been back to normal level for 4 years now. Of course in the fall its down again. I don't usually fish for cats. I catch two last year that were both 6 and 10 pounds on crawlers. Boat was getting work on and needed out of the house. So it worked for me. I released both of them. It's just a idea, I used to troll for walleye six years ago on Bodecker and catch cats instead. I'm to lazy to put my boat back on that lake to see what the fishing is like. I don't think the cats have left the lake when it drained, I think the walleyes did. Hagler also has cats but you might catch a trout instead.

Ive fished Lon Haglar for cats before and caught a few...but nothing too big. Maybe well take a stop at Boedecker to see how it looks...any suggestions about locations on the lake to try?
