    Ok it's time to get the the 5th annual gathering thread started to be held in Blythe CA, this will be the page/thread http://www.catfish1.com/forums/showthread.php?t=131576 in the gathering section that we should do all the talking about the gathering. In the past its always been a little confusing with post going on in a AZ thread and a separate one going on in a CA thread. And should help bring all the AZ and CA brothers together a little more:wink:

    Think a poll would be a good way to get it all started by seeing if and how the weekend 5/20 will work for ya all?:confused2: going to be one the AZ section and one in the CA section

    Me looking at it see's it as a good one because the moon will be 5 or 6 days from being full which will give good light out until 2 or 3am, shouldn't be killer hot yet in the day and be comfortable at night and the fishing will be at its very best:wink:

    Lets try to get the day set before the end of the year, there are folks that need to get there schedule's figured out by the 1st

    Good luck out there. Be sure to send my best to Randy. I love that Clear Lake. We definitely need to have a gathering at Clear Lake sometime. At the moment I have that flathead fever. A lot of our gatherings are at places with good bank fishing, since a lot of us don't have boats. If I had a boat I'd be right there with y'all at the derby. I'm not sure what the camping and bankfishing situation is like at Clear Lake, but it definitely needs to be on the radar. Good luck out there and hopefully we'll all come back with good pics and stories.:wink:

    Hey Big Robert - Now that will work! (I'm always down for a "Road Trip":go:). :0a23:
    :wink:

    :0a24:
    "You make a good point Steve" after talking to people like "T" - "Big Randy" & "Yourself".
    But what really put it over the top for me was when my boy "Big Sean" return, after hooking up with "Big Randy" for a Clear Lake Trip & he filmed it all & brought the footage to one of the Mendota Gathing.
    :crazy:
    So you see, that got to happen now. :0a23:
    :wink:

    Riverside,Ca it's about 180 miles from the colorado river down in blythe i think. do you know when the water will be up high enough to get a boat out on the river ? i have been reading that the water is real low right now. i am hoping to get to the river by mid march or early april.

    Grud... The "River" ..."per say" has enough water for boating.... Blythe is on the low side now.... but above Blythe, at Parker the water is up. You can always get onto the water at Lake Havasu. Even down at Yuma, the water is ok for boating.... Granted.. you have limited access... but you can get on the water.... don't have to wait for summer water to bring up things...

    There is good fishing at Needles.. You launch out of landings at I-40 and go into the "Gorge".... It is really nice in there..... "no rapids" :smile2:..got some 20 miles to get to Lake Havasu ....lots of good striper fishing and some nice "cut outs" in the river that lead to some nice "back water"...

    And... "speaking of backwater"... You need to check out "Catfish Paradise" on the "Topock Marsh".... good camping at many places....

    Dont forget the "river stamp"

    Have a great New Year
