    went out yesterday in boat. it's shallow. had hard time getting above martinez into top of ca channel. then the ditching and dodging to make it down channel. churned a lot of mud and dragged one older couple off bar.

    yes squaw is on ca side. there are some shore spots to fish, but not a lot. have indian reservation on ca side aways, and not much on az side unless you know where to go. i can get you to a few spots that i know has gave up fish if you ever decide to come this way.

    they shocked it maybe 1 1/2 miles or so above the dam. maybe a little more. was within 400 yds of where i'd lost that one several times a couple yrs ago. don't know if same one, but it was busting 60 lbs line on me.
    i gave you offer once lilmonster23. it still stands. just kinda wrong time of yr for best time.

    What's with the shallow water? I don't remember it being this shallow last year.

    I'll be out fishing again tomorrow. Probably put my canoe in at Betty's Kitchen and see how it looks just up from the Laguna Dam.

    Have seen a few pics of channels that guys are getting but not a lot of action. Water level in river is way low and temp is low too for much action. Canals would probably be your best bet. River level is low because water is being held farther up north and will probably remain that way for some time until snow pack levels can be determined. Have heard that levels up there are similar to what they were 20 years ago and there isn't much wiggle room for additional capacity so they may be letting some of it go down river before too long. Just my interpretation from what I hear on the grapevine. Tight lines.

    joey, great to see you back. say i to you now, thanks for your time and service over in that big sand pond.
    i've no idea right now on fish. been trying them all. think this darn weather and low water is doing us wrong for fishing.
