Fish Report-Freshwater, Nov. 11

TOP NEWS: Cool evenings are starting to change things here, but overall the bite still is fair throughout the river system. Stripers are fair to good in Mohave and Havasu with most of the fish chasing baitfish, mostly shad. This means some topwater or near-surface action, which sometimes can go on until mid-morning, and then action on fish in deeper water on cut baits. The largemouth and smallmouth bass action is generally good throughout the system, but especially in the backwaters for largemouths. The lower river is also pretty good for smallmouth bass, but getting little pressure. Havasu is also pretty good on smallmouth up chasing bait early (reaction baits) and then on rocky structure later (jigs and plastics). The catfish bite has been slowing with cooler water temperatures from Lake Mohave all the way to Yuma, especially in the backwaters and lagoons. The bite in the main river has been best, especially for channels on cut baits. Flatheads slowing. The redear and bluegill are fair to good in Topoc Marsh and Gorge, all of Havasu, and the lower stretch of river backwaters and lakes, but getting very little pressure.
