With incredibly hot temperatures over the weekend and to present the catfish are heading to the nest. I have started seeing males protecting the nests and others acting like they are looking for a nest. The bad news is the bite will slow. The good news is it looks to stay hot hurrying the spawn up.

Fishing has been spotty in most areas with lack of current to hold fish and make them predictable. The Drayton stretch has more current and is still producing pre spawn fish more than some other areas. Best baits have been fresh to attract hunting fish. Keep in mind that this heat will push the fish to a night bite as well. Keep working at it and it will happen.

The river is extremely low and caution should be exercised when boating (especially below dams) to ensure the safety you and your equipment.
