Trout stocking has begun and the latest stocking was the week of November 6th. The best bait is reported to be yellow and orange power bait and of course night crawlers. Try small spinner baits if the power baits are not working. Dane caught a nice 18 pound striper fishing the shore in the casino area using swim bait. You can check the Bureau of Reclamation Web site for flow predictions http://www.usbr.gov/lc/riverops.html before you go. If you fish the river below Davis Dam and are having luck, please e-mail me at gcummins@azgfd.gov so I can share your successes with others. Many thanks to Rusty from the Riviera Marina for his fishing report.
