I went cat fishing on the lower Colorado River (Horse Thief Canyon) for a couple of hours today. The water was high and muddy. Fished a big bend in the river. I caught one nice channel cat around 8 lbs. I was using cut bait on a circle hook above a 2oz bank sinker with 12 lb test. Didn?t even know she was on until I see my line moving upstream against the heavy current. Those river Channel Cats are strong! Too bad they are slowly being eradicated out of the Colorado.
