  • Catfish are not evenly dispersed over the stream bottom; rather they are concentrated in certain areas.

  • Increase your odds of catching fish by chumming the water where you plan to fish. Use canned dog or cat food, they will sink. Or hot dogs cut into chunks. This will bring the fish to you.

  • The single greatest determinant of catfish food preference is body size. Smaller catfish, those less than 14 inches, feed primarily on bottom-dwelling organisms, such as aquatic insect larvae and other invertebrates. As catfish grow to a larger size, their diet changes and a wider variety of food items are eaten. Fish, however, either alive or dead, make up the bulk of their forage after they reach 16 inches.

  • Fish at night and be quiet. Catfish seem to sense noise more than most fish.

  • Use dead minnows or cut-bait in the late winter and early spring when the water temperature is between 35-60 degrees F.

  • Always fish for Flatheads with live bait and remember, there is a difference between live bait and lively bait. Make sure your bait is really squirming: the more vibration in the water, the better the chance for a Flathead find it.
