On Monday I managed to land 2 channel cats approximately 12 and 16" from a tiny creek that dumps into the GMR. This creek often dries up in the summer. However, with the recent rains, the GMR had risen about 7 feet. There's nothing like 60 degree rainy weather and floods to get fish moving into these areas in search of food and shelter. I was only able to fish an hour but am confident that I could have caught a lot of channel cats had I more time to fish. I'll try and post pictures of these two "monsters" once I get them developed.
