    Welcome Herb to the BOC, I am sure you will get some good suggestions here. If you are headed towards Yuma area you will want to California post. There are some guys real familair with the river in that area. What part of the Colorado River? GOOD LUCK, You have found the site to get knowledgable advise!

    i have.if ur fishin from boat i suggest martinez lake north of the imperial dam or take ur boat up to picacho state park suppose 2 be some good flats there. if not try below imperial dam but make sure u take some heavy weights. those r the places im familiar with. there r some big channels in the co. try cut bait or live gills. u can fish anywhere on the river unless posted not to.

    Yea, Herb, I try and fish it as often as possible..

    This time of year the water levels will start dropping..

    I fished all last winter in the waters around Blythe,, and, caught fish..Flats, channels,, etc.

    Be cautious in a boat if you're using one..

    You can use the same tackle, as most anywhere, but, may want some heavy weights...

    I sure enjoy the dynamics of the River and surrounding waters,,

    I fish there quite allot about 5 miles down river from Laughlin there is a nice hole. I have caught stripper that went from my belt to the ground and a 19lb channel cat, never any huge flats but the water may be a little cold for them not really sure.
