After the recent rains, the creeks have swollen here in north houston and are moving pretty fast. I am curious to see what others expireinces with faster moving water and catching cats is. I want to say that the fish are still there and can be caught but then again, I am a salwater guy just trying to survive in the fresh water metropolis i live in. Thanks!

i like faster moving water. it tends to isolate the fish. the will congregate where the swimming is easy. look for laydowns. pools where the current slows. rocks. the drop offs of shallows.
basically anyplace where a fish could just hang out and see what floats by without fighting the current too hard.

Yep my favorite catfishing is blues and channels right below rapids where the water slows, or on bends of rivers near current.
