Did a solo shore fishing trip to Lake Nockamixon on 9-11-2010. Stopped up to the pier near the boat docs and came up empty. Decided to try down by one of the bridges and:
pulled up this nice 20″ Channel Catfish. Sorry the pic makes it look like it’s only 18″. I had some trouble managing a camera, tape measure and floppy fish. This momma was preggers so I quickly put her back into the water.
I caught a few Bluegills and a Perch from this same spot but nothing of notable size.
I’m thinking of trying these spots by the bridge again. The scenery was beautiful and I got to see a few hawks, a large water snake, and an absolutely huge fish who stole my minnow but was not willing to be hooked!
