When Do Channel Cats ???

Discussion in 'Catfish Discussion' started by Fish On, Jun 26, 2007.

  1. Start coming up the creeks in the Spring to spawn , I see alot of guys have been catching them at the lower sections of rivers , how far do they normally run up a river ?? do they stay in the rivers long ?? where do they like to spawn in the rivers deep holes , riffles , rocks .. Thanks for any help

  2. you done missed the "spring run/feed". usually here in SW Ohio the big feed begins in early March and lasts until mid May. channels started spawning here about 3-4 weeks ago and should be done by now. your creek or river should have them in there most of the year. once they spawn they will hang out in deeper pools until it gets cold. if the creek isnt very deep they will no doubt go back to a larger river or lake in late fall.
