    When you are going down hwy 78 there are two stop signs after you pass ripley before palo verde. At the second stop sign make a left instead of the instead of the right too palo verde. When you come to the canal.
    after about a 3/4 of a mile make another left and drive up the canal untill you hit the first irrigation dranged canal walk down and the talapia will hit your nitecrawler as soon as it hits the water and you will catch some bluegills too. Oh the west side of the canal!!

    Hey riverbud! Ill be heading towards my place today (Friday). I have to work Sunday so Ill only get one day of fishing. Ill be after LMB off of Walters camp. Dont know if you'll be up that way this weekend. How ever Ill be heading back next weekend for three days. I just have to get out of Los Angeles. Taking the wife and girls with me this time. Next weekend I should be alone unless I can find a fishing partner.
    Count me in of the BOC get together. Dont know when or where Ill show up but I would like to join the fellas for some cat info. I have a small duck boat that would hold one more adult. If I dont bring another person count me in as taking a non boater.

    karodi(keith) I,ll be getting some pic,s soon tried this last weekend but ran out of battries after a few pic.s, not much man made trash but nature sure left a lot , trees and a lot weeds and river grass, seams your always pulling that crap of your lines. here's a map satalite pic http://maps.google.com/?t=k&ll=33.594724,-114.536558&spn=0.001863,0.00273&t=h of were the dudes were getting the shad the pic shows a back water and in the middle youll see a white spec that is a car on a boat ramp, in front of the ramp is were thay were this last weekend. I did get some pics of this place ill post soon. the water you cant ever figer out should be up in april, the water comes up to its highest some time in the early AM around say 3am and starts coming down around 10 or 11 AM with low water around 3 to 4 pm, it may drop 3' or 4' each day. Fridays are a low water day with the water not coming up much. you can get a idea of how its been and going to be by going to http://www.usbr.gov/lc/riverops.html and looking at Hourly Elevations and Releases and finding palo verda look at todays info and past 4 day info any thing above 5000cfs is a good water elevation

    jaime your not going to swim against the curent but you can swim the river, before we had boats down there we used to tube down the river from in front camp around the bend http://maps.google.com/?ll=33.659139,-114.520562&spn=0.012324,0.015943&t=h get out walk back to camp takes about 5 min walk back to camp. it takes about 45 min to float around the bend. any one having a float tube mite be able to use them in that area for fishen. The river can kill though, just this last labor day weekend there was an 18yr old boy killed just up river from camp, kid tried to follow his bud across the river and couldn't make it, tried to swim back up river and tierd himself out, found him under a dock in front of 1 of the houses, if your ever fall in the river out of your boat DONT fight the river you will get out some were there always a sand bar to be found get to the edge of river .anouther thing is to always have shoes on just in case ya need to do some walking to get back. but ya we swim the river all the time. when its 115 ya got to cool off some how.

    Thanks Dale, I think I will stick with the public showers. I have alot of respect for the river. I once flipped on Cedar river. The current can be decieving. The current was so strong, I lost a shoe!. Luckily I was wearing a life jacket and the big man was watching over me. I also forgot to mention my buddy Allen and Greg helping me up on the boat! This happend at the Iowa gathering 2003.

    I have never used shad but I bet they would kick some tail!!
    I also think you will catch big channels and stiper on them. Last september we cought a 12lb striper across from walters camp on liver.
