Series explores fishing along the Colorado
KINGMAN - "I once caught a fish THIS big!"
Both experienced and novice anglers can learn how to make the story of the whopper a reality at Thursday night's Summer Wildlife Series on fishing for striped bass on the Colorado River reservoirs.
The Summer Wildlife Series, 6:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 17, at the Mohave County Library in Kingman will feature a presentation by Andy Clark, fisheries program manager for the Game and Fish Kingman office.
The library, with seating capacity of 52, is located at 3269 Burbank St.
Zen Mocarski, event organizer, said while most of the Summer Series presentations are designed for people of all ages, this particular effort will appeal more to adults.
"While it's still open to the public, Andy's presentation will appeal more to an adult audience," Mocarski said.
"Andy will discuss the origins of striped bass in the lakes, their biology and ways to catch them."
In addition, Clark will talk about how Game and Fish manages striped bass and what the future of this fish might be in the Colorado River reservoirs.
"If you're looking for a story to tell for years to come, its flathead catfish and striped bass in the Colorado River system," Clark said.
"Those are, by far, the two largest species in that waterway."
