    I use to fish the lower Colorado in Yuma and Palos Verdes for many years. The fishing can be tough on the main river due to water fluctuation. The best bet is to fish in semi enclosed lagoon and back water for best result.

    Are you talking of the river in the Central Hill Country near Bend TX.? If so the water is very low. I've never really done very well there for cats, but the White Bass and Crappie have in the past been great fishing.

    We fished the Colo. for a week last month! Did not do well, a few small fish. We got the most hits on carp chunks.:crying:

    Me and some buddys set lines a couple weeks ago and caught a few small yellow cats. The water is pretty low and the sand bars are building up, makes for some interesting navigation. we tore the channels up on stink bait with poles.
