    Its been a few years but I have seen some big flatheads come out of Conestoga 50 - 60# And some blues not as big most of the bigger ones that I saw were in the 7 - 10 # range. Not sure what the low water in the past has done to them, I hnow it got pretty low :cry:

    Well, I try to catch catfish at conostoga and I give it everything Iv'e got. Yet I dont catch anything. However, one guy caught a 35 pound blue out of there just about two weeks ago. He was using some shiners.
