Ok, no one has written anything here so here goes nothing. Has anyone tried fishing the gila gravity canal for flatheads? I have caught some nice channels out of there but haven't really rigged up for flatheads there before. I like fishing canals so I try the gila or the All American sometimes too. Anyone have similar interests?

Yes the Colorado runs right just west of town (Yuma). The Gila is taken off the river at Imperial dam & goes to Az and the All American is taken off and goes to Ca to supply drinking water for So Ca. I have taken some nice fish out of there but never any flats.
I fish the Gila Gravity almost every day. I have gone for flaties a few times but I haven't caught any. I have caught a few nice size channels. I caught one around 10 lbs. If you are on the Gila Gravity and see two kids fishing there chances are its me. :thumbsup:
I fish with Matt McPherson at the Gila canal almost every day too. I have caught many catfish out of there, mostly channels though. I did catch a 13 pound Flathead on a small live bluegill. I have caught many Stripers there as well using livers or a crankbait.
