River Channel Catfish
This winter I put more research together and wrote an 2nd catfish book. It went in for final proof today.
One thing I like in low water is if I can find a little current and hole that is 1-5 feed deep with the water running over it. It usually does not hold many fish but the ones it does are usually very nice.
After they finally put 2 and 2 together the fish have generally moved on or I have done what you say and switched ramps and sections of river all together.
Quite entertaining trying to stay ahead of the game. Advantage to running about 60 miles of river. I am looking to add 10-15 more miles now that another guide has moved out of one section.
You would not believe some of the fish I have caught within sight of the ramp and had dozens of people drive by me for a "better bite" further away.
At least around here away means 2-6 miles away so depending on the time of year I fish by the ramp or more than 6 miles away from it.
The problem with the close stuff any more is locals know move and know that if I am fishing by the ramp for more than a few minutes I'm onto something so I have to be sneaky sometimes.
