Fishing Tips for Parker Strip

For 15 miles from Parker Dam to Headgate Rock Dam flows the Colorado River. Those 15 miles are home to amazing fishing for catfish, smallmouth bass, sunfish, and striped bass. Just below Parker Dam drifting the rocky shorelines is a really good idea for smallmouth bass. Inline spinners like Mepps, Rooster Tails, and Blue Foxes, crankbaits, and jigs tipped with twister tails work the best. Redear sunfish here can grow upwards of 2lbs. If that interests you try fishing areas with little current like inlets or backwaters with worms, grubs, and shrimp under a bobber. Redears will almost never hit lures. If you want to go for catfish consider using stink baits, hot dogs, corn, live minnows, live bluegills, and anchovies. Catfish tend to bite better after dark. For stripers use live shad, anchovies, crankbait, and spoons. When using anchovies cut them into thirds and fish them with no added weight. Right below the dam is the best spot. Working the edges of bulrushes with weedless rig will work the best for largemouth bass. The best lures for that sort of fishing are soft plastics and topwaters work well. For all lures shad or crayfish colors work the best. Tight Lines!
