Key Water Temperatures

After the spawn, Catfish are generally the most active when the water temperature is above 70deg and are very active feeders up to 85deg. In early spring and late fall when the water tempeartures are below 65 catfish are generally not very active, however they are still feeding. If you have a power plant close with cats in the cooling lake, the outlet during the winter will really concentrate the large fish.

If you want to catch good size ones dont\'t fish near the boat. Let it out a lot and drift and if you cant drift trollin motor works every time for me caught a 13lb the other day near the dam.Also one of the best baits too use is chickenliver.In the summer of last year our dad caught a 36 pound cat on the dock.
