    Hey guys I will be making a trip out to Niobrara next month and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on spots to fish for big cats on the Niobrara around the trading post area. I don't have a boat so will be bank fishing.. bait will be blue gills, gold fish, shad if I can catch some, and fresh cut bait. looking for any help at all as it will be my first trip to that area.

    I’ve heard below Spencer dam is good fishing. Never been but a lot of people go there to fish catfish.

    Thanks I will try to hit that area on my trip. I'm hoping for some big flatheads and some blues. I'm going to try the 100lb catfish challenge but all I can do is hope and explore right. do you know if there is any good bank fishing spots?
