View Full Version : Canal West of Biggs

Holly and I had to go to the Gridley/Biggs area this past Saturday for some business. We had heard of winter catfishing in the chocolate milk filled canals in that area, so we decided to give it a shot.

On her first cast, Holly reeled in a 6 incher. That was the first of a dozen or so 6-12 inch catfish we caught. There was a suprise tho, Hollys pole suddenly bent in half and there was a trashing about in the water. We both thought she had caught the grand daddy catfish, but it turned out to be a huge carp. Easily 10 lbs.

Not exactly the fishing we had hoped for, but an entertaining outing none the less.

I live in Chico and have heard about the canal catfishing but where is it? I just want me and a friend to catch some cats and I will not spread the info around other than here.

Who knows what canal we were at? We just drove down a farm road, and looked for an irrigational canal with water in it. They are everywhere.
