It seems you hear that fishing high muddy water is good for catfishing. It seems I have more luck when the water is lower and slower. Like right now with all the recent rains would you catfish the rivers and creeks?

you have to find areas where they can get out of the fast flow, and use baits with more scent as they use scent to find there meal especially in muddy waters. When I have to fish fast/high water I look for cuts in the shoreline or drops on the depth finder where they can get out of the fast current and feed. The negative is high water also means more food in the water. Hit feeder creeks and look for fish searching out the new buffet. It is definitely harder fishing.

Around here thats usally when the biggest cats are caught, during high water. The bluecats are made for heavy current and love it. I was out yesterday and it took 6oz to stay on the bottom. When fishing that heavy current, you have to use heavier outfits, not bass rods.
