how good is shovelhead catfishing in the rio grande near
Honestly,Rick, I have no idea,not even sure if they're there. The farther north you go upstream,the more the Rio is a Trout stream.
i dont know what part of the river he fishes but my nephew is from alb. and he catches cats in the 20@30lb range all the time
he has called me several times in the middle of the night telling me about his catches
I've never fished the Rio around Albuquerque but I found this article a while back that talks about the canals that run along the Rio throughout the city.
rio grande is probably one of the further west river system to have the shovelhead in it naturally people forget about this river usually is it the ohio Mississippi or Missouri river that draw most of the attention but i am sure the rio grande should have 50 or even 60 lb in it rick
I have heard of flats in the Gila also from locals around Deming. Don't know if theyre there or not tho.
I don't think they are there. I fish the Rio Grande about 5 miles above Albuquerque almost daily. I catch alot of channels and blues and even some brown trout. My friend was fishing at the Bosque del Apache Preserve south of Albuquerque this weekend and he caught a 45lb Flathead, It was amazing, he was using a live sucker. I was surprised because the river rarely flows over 4ft deep, and often can get down to just inches except for a few deep holes (9-11ft)..
I've heard stories in the past about big Rio Grande cats down from
Elephant Butte to El Paso. As a kid we used to fish around Anthony, NM but nowdays the water level is extremely low and the access to the river is restricted. Anybody know of some holes in that area leave a post, just looking for some info.
