    Which is better to fish; high water or low water? With the recent rain and snow fall in North Carolina my favorite spot (Jordan Lake) is high by 2 feet. Will the bite be worse? Should I focus on creek inlets or look for the deep channels? I am looking for channel cats primarily but I figured this is a good series of questions for any catfish.... your thoughts?:confused2:

    Here in Okla when the lake is coming up or up I fish the creeks that run in. Right now Ft Gibson in 4 ft above normal and the channel cat are biting in the creeks. Also you will pick up a blue. I hope it stays like this for a couple more weeks.

    I would fish the feeder creeks and up closer to the bank. I wouldn't mess with the deeper water right now. What are you using R&R or setting out lines ?

    Its always a good idea to fish the mouth of those feeder creeks.I find when the water is high i catch the bigger cats and when its low all i catch is the smaller channel cats.I dont know it could be just me it might be the opposite with someone else,thats just how it normally works out for me.
