I'v been fishing this small lake in N.AZ., this small lake has been stocked by game and fish dept with channel cat. At the begining of summer I regularly caught 4 to 6 pound holdover fish, with some small stocker's in between. Lately the summer rains have hit hard and water leve has risen at least a foot and a half.(note: notice the same thing last summer). My question, is the run off having affect on fish bitting? if so how long after the last run off should I make another attempt af fishing.
