    im not familiar with that area...im sure that someone has to have some good info for ya. have you been able to find any areas with a little moving water? I know you can pull them from still water but a little current seems to help out most of the time for me.

    How close are you looking for? Lake Roosevelt is your best bet, just book it up the Apache Trail

    Colorado River. Produces flats all the time. For lots of people. I know a few people that travel 4+ hours to come fish here.

    if you'd tell people where you are at, it would help. we do have people all over this state, but you have us in the blind where you are.

    I've caught a few flatheads from the shore at Roosevelt, but, since the water is up ,, I don't have a clue..
    I fish mainly at the Colordo , near Blythe, CA.. Find somewhere you can cast a line in, and fish..
    The more you go, the more you'll learn,,
    I'm still trying to get more time on Roosevelt and Bartlett, but, without a boat,, no confidence in this bank fisherman,,,,,,
