    Fishing Bylth in October the days are a little cooler and the nights are colder and as far as the fishing I am really not sure what to tell you it all has to do with what the water Temp is. Sometimes we do get a few flatheads and other times we get a few channel cats and sometimes we are just going for a boat ride. The best way to learn to fish the river is to make as many trips as you can all year long and fish any were that looks good to you. I first stared fishing the river in 1964, I have fished from Parker Dam all the way south to Yuma and everytime I go I learn something new. You are more that welcome to come down and fish when Dale ( Riverbud) and I are there and we will help you with what we can. I hate to say this but you won't learn to fish the river looking at this screen, you have to get your line in the water. Yes you will pick up a lot of good info on hear, so learn what you can and head for the river. Hope to see you at the river. Billy Jo
    PS. sometimes dale and I well be down there 2 times a month and some times dale will be there every weekend.

    Billy jo,
    Thats spot on.I first started reading Dales(riverbuds)reports 2 years ago and it got the fire lite under my butt to just get out and get on the river.That first trip I ran into Dale on the water,real nice guy and very helpfull.My first 3 days and nights out there were the ruffest but thats how you learn.I have never been on Dales boat but he really helped me get into the flathead fever on the big river.

    Thanks Dale,
    That fish was and is a fish of a lifetime.I knew that as soon as I seen it.I set a life goal of landing a flathead over 40lbs,and to actually see and touch a 66 was almost beyond words.
    Good luck out there,I hope you get on a fish of a lifetime too.You have put more time in on the river and helped more people than anyone else.Ill admitt you even helped put me on my pb flat,but I put her back for ya.

    Hey gary,
    I was acually gonna meet up with you one trip about 4 years ago on the Alamo river in Imperial valley.Im pretty sure we were one street/canal away from eachother.This was on sdfish.I havent been back to the Alamo since I started fishing the blythe and palo verde areas in the boat.Its nice to be able to take some fish home for the frying pan.
    Heres one of the bigger fish I landed from the alamo @ 30lbs

    Gary,

    How are you doing. I haven't heard from you in two years. How's everything in Arizona? When are you going to invite me down to go fishing?

    hey andre, has been awhile. the last few yrs i've been kinda busy. the last has just been hectic. i've spent close to 8 months or so in idaho. my dad is dying of terminal cancer. fact gotta fly up again soon as i get a transmission replaced if not sooner.
    after that settles, i'll be back to kinda normal in awhile and will contact you. hadn't forgotten you. just in at out here constantly.
    probably a few more months then back home to try and settle down again. still got my e-mail? use it, or pm me.
