    I have never fished the Butte LaRose area. If you get out and catch a few, let us know.

    Be careful...the best thing to do is talk to some locals. A couple of my friends use to run trot lines in the river over there for a couple of weeks each summer and sometimes they did well and at others...Nada. I would think that large night crawlers, river shrimp, shad...if you catfish at all you know that catfish will hit just about anything with a smell if they are biting. I would find a local bait/ tackle shop and talk to the owner or whoever is working they usually know everything about an area.

    Good luck and let us know what you find out.
