Default Waco Brazos Catfishing

A few times a year, a group of us will travel to a river for a weekend to run lines specifically targeting large yellow cats aka flathead catfish.

We have an opportunity to fish the Brazos this year just east of Lake Waco. Does anyone have any experience with this water?

Specifically:

Fishing any good?
Easily navigable by boat or is it shallow?
Is it overfished?

I have fished the Brazos several times in Falls County but not this far up. We are normally in a more remote area and not sure how to feel about running lines in town.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Just go eat at Buzzard Billy's on the River at night, and you can watch the big cats come up and eat the scraps people throw off the deck. I think it's mostly blue cats, but there some big'ns in there. Always wanted to take a Kayak just outside the lights and throw a line in the swarm

We used to do real good at Navarro Mills for flat heads.

Haven’t done it since high school(27yrs) but we use to catch some big old kittys where the bosque and brazos meet near Cameron park.

Thatís about 6 miles downstream from our access. Not bad it itís deep enough to run WOT.

Are you on Facebook?

If so, check out Fish On Texas page

It’s a local group that fish’s a lot on the Brazos here in the Waco area.

...and if you catch a big ‘Un, bring it by my store and I can weigh it.

We are a TPWD Official Weight Station...
