After a somewhat rough trip down here, we are back on the Colorado River in southwest Arizona looking for largemouth bass. I am not quite in tip top kayak fishing shape because on the way down here, while stopped for a construction zone flagman, a fully loaded semi truck rear ended me, almost killing myself and the construction flagman, destroying my truck and crushing just about everything in it.

I was extremely lucky to not be killed, although I did sustain some lingering injuries. Even worse, the insurance companies are giving me a hard time and I will probably take a financial beating as well. If you think you are covered in case of an accident, you better think again. If you have Progressive vehicle insurance, I beg you to get rid of them and get somebody else.

Anyway, the water levels here on the Colorado watershed are up and down like a yo-yo. The river level can change as much as five or six feet in a few days. Dramatic water level changes definitely put a damper on the fishing action so things have been a bit slow. We've at least managed to get a couple fish on the slow days and got a few decent bass when the fishing has been a little better.

The fishing should pick up when the people in Southern California stop taking so many showers and draining the Colorado River. When the water levels stabilize somewhat, we expect to see the bigger fish come out to play. They gotta eat sometime. So count your blessings, be thankful you are able to go kayak fishing and take it one day at a time.

The scenery is always great, but the fishing has been on the slow side due to fluctuating water levels.

Getting a few here and there, mostly in the early morning.

Always looking for the fish...
