Catfishing continues to be good but has slowed some over the past week. The heat and a water color variation has made fishing a little tougher but it is still outstanding. There are still many big fish around to be caught with many in the 14-16 pound range with some bigger.
Since it got hot over the weekend the fish have moved deeper during the day. They seem to be liking the slower currents in the morning and moving into the faster currents as the day goes on. Goldeye has been the big fish bait of choice but suckers are working and frogs are starting to play into the mix as well. Twenty five to 30 minutes on a spot is about the time to make sure fish are able to find the bait.
All ramps are in good shape except Drayton. They are finally to the right water level but mud and debris still have everything in fairly poor shape.
The next tournaments up are Cats Incredible in East Grand Forks July 30 and 31. Also the $10,000 guarantee for first place Catfish Capital Challenge in Drayton is August 12 and 13.
We have open guiding dates available: August 2,3,4, 7, 8, 9, 23,24, 31 and September has lots of openings.
