Has anyone found any Catalpa worms yet?
Just wondering if it's worth taking the time to check a few trees?
Its about that time, maybe a little late actually. Who knows with this hot summer what the timing will be like.
I have a nice catalpa tree on the far east end of my property, but it's never had worms on it.

I know I know im several hundred miles.away but the catalpa worms are cycling every 30 days or until all the leaves are gone on the few trees I have ever since may . Whats so bad is I never fish with them .
Catalpa worms....not CATAWBA.
Worms which frequent them.....
Can't tell! Catawba worm trees are just THAT.
Catawba is a tribe of Indians (native Americans).
my gpa has a few trees and he said they were on about a month ago, ive used them a few times there great for channel cats but i havent caught anything bug with them on the rivers. my wifes gpa has 4 of them hanging over the water at his lake and anything and everything eats them in there if i get there right when they start showing up it like heaven, ya never know what ur gonna bring outta there cause it used to be a paylake in the 60s. i caught a bunch of flatheads, bass, channels bluegills,crappie, and even carp outta there in one day, great day that was. as for anywhere else channels will tear them up, i always put the hook at the head and rolled them inside out down the hook and it worked well but the bluegills tear them up quick to.
It's been an odd year for catalpa worms in this area. My trees had some worms about a month earlier than normal then they disappeared and haven't returned to this point.
