If you can, fish from a boat, there is NO private property while you are in your boat. Tie off on brush and let your bait work down under the brush down stream.I have fished it my whole life, a lot more in my youth though. We have had plenty of success. I fish from Elwood North. I have Caught Catfish, Crappie, Blue gill, Perch, Small Mouth Bass, Large Mouth Bass, Walleye, Chanel Cat, and all sorts of carp. I like to fish the river bends. The rivers has very deep channels. You could almost walk across waist high, then all the sudden drop in over your head. The catfish like to swim in those channels. We seem to do a lot better when the water is low. Especially at night. I have used all mentioned above for bait, but I also like to use cut up carp. Lots of private property, but plenty of good honey holes that are public. Good luck and let us know how you do.
What is "Noodles"? I have heard of noodling where you catch them with your hands.I've been having catfishing on my mind since it started warming up. Going get me a new rod a lunchtime.
We've always had good luck with livers, gizzards or hearts. Lots of people use "cut bait" which is cut up fish of some sort.
I wish Utah would get on the ball and allow "noodles" for catfishing, it's so absolutely stupid that they don't.
This is just one variation...very similar to the ones my brother uses in Louisiana. They usually set out about 3-5 dozen and just run them in the boat when they flip up with a fish on...it's easy, fun and you can drink beer while you're doing itWhat is "Noodles"?
