Colorado River fishing report: below Davis Dam

Local 4 year old angler Devin and uncle Cole landed a nice stringer of trout fishing from shore using night crawlers in the Lazy Harry’s Bay. By the dam, anchovies or your favorite lure is doing well for stripers. Near the casinos trout are the fish to target. Try night crawlers for trout if the power baits aren’t working. Small spinners can land trout when other baits are not working.
