Depending on what you’re fishing for and which direction you are on Intake Blvd. If you’re south of the 10 Fwy try hitting Oxbow lake. If your north there are plenty of canals that hold gills, tilapia and lil cats. Good old fashion night crawler on a C rig works the best but for the gills and tilapias try using a slip bobber. Hope this gives you a lil direction.

All sounds good to me. I'm supposed to go to the River in April. Cousin and niece have a place "near Yuma" not really sure exactly where. They do really good there, she landed a 12.6# LMB recently; according to him they almost exclusively use live shiners; asked him about artificials ... he said ok, but her prefers the shiners

Hey all sounds good to me, but it's been a long time since I fished the River. Cousin and niece have a place near Yuma, AZ (not sure exactly where); they do really good on LIVE SHINERS .. she landed a 12.6# LMB recently; asked them about artificials, they said: "ok" but "we prefer the shiners, seem to attract larger fish ..."

Contact the guys at Blue Water tackle in Temecula. They go there every year to do fly fishing on the river for smallmouths.
