Great Kayak Fishing for Largemouth Bass

As the spring break crowds descended on the Colorado River, we managed get a couple days of great kayak fishing for largemouth bass. The exceptionally windy desert conditions continues with only a two day window to go after the springtime largemouth bass.

The first day was an exceptional morning of fishing. I caught at least a dozen largemouth bass with a few real nice fish. Lots of kayak fishing action, meaning I lost a few more nice largemouth bass.

With tomorrow being Saturday on a big holiday weekend, this part of the river would have a lot more traffic so we headed to another spot we thought the fishing wouldn’t be as good, but there would be less people. It turned out to be a good call because it wasn’t as crowded and the fishing was better than expected.
