Jason and Tyler Howick report: Catfishing has been slower than normal this year across Lake Erie tributaries due to colder night-time temperatures and lack of significant rainfall. The Channel Catfish that we have caught have been holding in deeper holes in lower sections closer to the lake. Significant temperature drops in rivers scattered fish downstream and pushed them tight to cover. Fishing slip-bobbers and bottom rigs, baited with chunks of cut baitfish, close to shoreline holding areas has produced some good fish in the 10-13 lb range. The rainfall we have recently received has drawn more and bigger fish upstream and hopefully warmer temperatures will improve the fishing.
