Where do you guys like to fish at Mendo for cats, i have never been to the lake but was thinking about taking my maiden voyage this weekend, any pointers on location?

I heard people are catching them in the channel where the river flows into the lake. I am going to give it a shot next weekend, hopefully they will still be there!

Gave Mendo a shot Sunday 1/15, went up HWY 20 and fished below the bridge where the river slowed, didnt fish long, got tired of standing in a foot of mud (OK, the wife got tired if it) I got skunked, the wife landed the biggest sucker i have ever seen probably would have weighed 3+ lbs. Used worms, missed a few soft bites but no cats.

Cut suckers make great cat bait ;)

They are in the deep channell that runs the length of the lake.We have caught them in the spring in the channell.

Last time I was there 2 guys hooked up with 8 and 20 lb cats at noon on minnows....
It was in late September.
