Most channel cats gather near brush piles, drop offs, humps, stumps, dead falls, or pockets cutting into the bank. Big channel cats seem to prefer deeper water at the base of ledges . They also gather in the turns of channel bends, and the edges in or near dam tail waters.
Catfish are more aggressively feeding in the spring months as the weather warms . The winter period of reduced meals will leave the channel cat with an ongoing hunger, and now as the temperatures are rising it is stimulating their metabolism, channel cats are always on the prowl looking for shad, crayfish, sunfish or other meals to satisfy their appetites.
Heavy rains in the spring may have swollen many rivers. This resulting in increased current conditions. Channel cats will head to areas where they can escape the heavy current. This is one reason they will gather in brush piles, drop offs, humps, stumps, dead falls, or pockets cutting into the bank.
