    I just purchased a new home in Mingo, Ia. I see on the aerial I have two bridge access’s into the skunk river near my house. They both are outside the Colfax area. Does anyone do any cat fishing in this stretch? I would assume it would be primarily channels there. Just scoping the area looking for things around me to do. Maybe a good stretch to kayak? Anything else besides channels in that stretch? any info would be appreciated!

    thanks!

    I fish the Skunk occasionally just east of Colfax and have caught flatheads along with the channels. The last few years, smallmouth bass have been showing up. Good luck!

    I’ve heard of good channel catfishing and a few flatheads being caught that way. Never fished it, but I’ve heard enough good things I need to! Goodluck!

    I have heard good things. From what I understand, it’s a decent area to catch cats and smallmouth. I meant to get out there this year but then life happened.
