lots of catfish in the river below craig...around maybell too. I don't know how big the cats get, but I imagine pretty good sized. They are under pressured too!!! Big smallies, big pike, tons of catfish, nice trout....it is an amazing fishery!
The yampa has good catfishing closer to maybell area, the river also has an abundance of smallmouth although the DOW has been killin allot of those fish as well as the pike. Go closer to maybell to Dinasaur for the smallies. the river now is blown out though, not a good time to fish. Also Elkhead is closed. they have been doubling the size of it, it should open next year, See Ya, Eric
