    Try the Verde River Just below Horseshoe Dam ( Catfish point) you will need surf casting gear as the hole is about 100 yards or more off the rocks at the point. Take light tackle with you and use Strawberry dough balls in the weeds and reeds to catch Carp for bait. use tandem hooks on the carpone through the back by the dorsal and one throught he tail ( this keep them from flying off with the distance you need to cast them out).

    I cant say it enough you have to cast way out to hit the hole where the Flatheads lay other wise you arent going to get much action:confused2: . he who casts the farthest catches fish the others watch.

    Good luck tight lines and let me know how you do. :cool2:

    You have to go during the middle of the week to even get a sniff of that place, usually it's packed on the weekends, can't wait till they open indian springs road so I can get back to my spot, good luck man.

    My son and I got up this morning and headed out to scout some new spots around the Yuma area. We were going to try one spot out tonight but I got duped into going to a birthday party:roll_eyes: ... Might try it out this week.

    Rivers are few and far between in AZ. A dedicated individual could do well fishing them. The Colorado River from Lake Havasu, south is very good fishing.

    Mead is good for channels, theres no flatheads (I'm pretty sure AZ has no blues.) There are plenty of other good lakes, same as the rivers they are kind of few and far between (compared to back east anyways).

    Check back at the past threads, I doubt theres a lake or river in AZ that hasnt been talked about at some time.

    Nice fish guys!! My favorite place is Lake Havasu. There are huge catfish there as well as stripers and largemouth bass and other panfish. Regardless of how crowded it is you can always find a place to be by yourself and take in it's beauty and catch some nice fish. I have been going there with my family since I was a toddler ( and trust me on this one...that was a long time ago! ). If the wind doesn't blow you off the lake I can can get bit there!
