COLORADO RIVER (BELOW DAVIS DAM)According to Rusty Braun of Riviera Marina, the striped bass bite continues to pick up in this zone. Most of the biters are school-sized 1 to 3 pounders, but the numbers are climbing and quality shouldn’t be far behind. Rotary Park and Community Park have been especially productive, and anchovies have been the top bait. The panfish bite is expected to take off in the shallows soon.

LAKE HAVASU– Anglers competing in the WON Lake Havasu Striper Derby piled them up, overwhelmingly on cut anchovies, but there were some caught on trolled diving baits as well as spoons and swimbaits. There were high-winds in the forecast for Sunday but it ended up being a lotta nada. Big redears are still being caught, and anglers are reporting finding schools estimated to be carrying triple-digit numbers of them. While many are being found in 30 feet of water, shore pounders are also getting into them. Largemouth still in pre-spawn are biting at a fair clip, while smallmouth are biting well along the Parker Strip. Shore anglers fishing in The Channel are getting a little bit of everything. The new and improved Site 6 launch ramp is now open.
