Staying Put at BLM Oxbow Campground on the Colorado River, Cibola, AZ

Weekend 3/11–3/13

March 10th, 2016

Hi ya’ll!

It looks like a very promising weekend for playing on the river.  The forecast for Friday through Sunday are high temp mid 80’s on Friday, high 70’s Saturday and Sunday.  Water levels should be 218.7’ to 221’ surface elevation.  Unless you are trying to launch a yacht it should be an easy launch.

Fishing just keeps picking up, although it may slow down soon.  The Bass are building nests and starting to protect them, which I understand means you have to whap them on the head with your lure to make them angry and bite Winking smile.  Beyond that, the Crappy in the Oxbow Lake are biting quite nicely and our group camping over there are having fish fries often.  To be honest I haven’t had any reports of how the fishing is on the river, but the back waters are doing good.

We seem to be getting quite a few more campers in here this winter than we’ve had the last two.  Word of our little paradise on the river is getting out.  From Dec. 1, 2015 through today we’ve only had 3 days with an empty campground.

What I’m saying is, if you plan on camping out here this weekend, be prepared to get creative in finding a place to park.  Right now the point is pretty much full, there’s room on the other side of the ramp and there’s room down in the larger area on the lake.  I do know one of the folks on the point will be leaving Saturday sometime, and there are a couple more who might leave, but we’re not sure. Other than that I don’t know what it will be like this weekend.

We haven’t heard from our Motorcycle Club so we don’t know if they plan on coming in or not.  If we do hear from them, I will post the very day I find out.  With 200+ people in their group, they pretty much fill up our campground.  Stay tuned…..

With people coming in and going out and driving through, we’ve stayed so busy I’ve not been able to get out and take photos other than right here in the campground and on the way to and from getting mail and going grocery shopping.  I do have some shots on my cameras I plan on downloading and checking to see if they are share-worthy.  If so, I’ll post them as soon as I’ve got time to throw in an extra blog post.

In the meantime…..
Stay healthy and happy!
