Does anybody esle do any wade fishing for catfish in any of their home waters? We wade the Neosho river in the Se Kansas segment in several spots. Theres a couple of low water dams here that have shallow riffles below them that are hot spots. We'll get out there and catch the hell out of blues from 5 or 10 lb...up to 30 lb or better at times. You can really learn alot about a river by wading it. You might step in a hole one day...discovering it for the first time...and then turn around the next day and catch fish out of it. Some people have a problem with wading...others learn to love it after they actually got in there and tried it on a good day.
