Hello, I am new to the BOC but luve to catfish. I'm not able to go out to the lakes and rivers as much as I would like. But I have found the Phoenix area canals to be a Catfish haven. Every time I go out I catch a stringer full of 1 to 2 lbs channel cat, with an occasional 5+ pounder. Counts are about 10 to 25 in about 2 hours. I also have caught 1 27lb Flatty from the canal. Anybody else have any experience fishing the canals in Phoenix?
