So I've been enviously noticing that some people are now startingl to catch catfish. while a few of you avid flathead fans got your first few fish; others seem to stumbled onto some pretty nice channel action. from experiences late in the fall, I am 99% sure any catfish local to me has moved downstream... but I have one upcoming opportunity to go catch them. on the night of the 16th, I will have all night to fish. mid march, is much earlier than I've ever chased catfish before. during this season, the alleghany is more known for walleye than catfish, and I worry that most of the places I would normally look for them will be empty. Are catfish very deep this time of year? are they found in areas of weaker current? (in warmer water-channels seem to be pretty tolerant to currant)? are the catfish concentrated more than normal? are they tighter than normal to brush? during warmer parts of the year,I've always looked for eddy's and river confluences. Can you catch catfish this time of year by fishing these same kinds of places? I'm not looking for anyones hotspot but as I'm driving a long ways and its still cold- and I'm kindof hoping for some help so that I catch something. also if anyone was out and fishing in the north navigational locks (or further upstream) it would be nice also to fish with someone. I know some people are fishing parts just north of the burgh like HPD. I'm less certain if I can do that.
