Nothing shuts down a catfish bite like like a huge change in water temperature.  Here is the graph from my Red River at Grand Forks, ND  Basically a 10 degree drop in four days.  The catfish are feeling this one and once everything settles out they will be heading for the wintering holes.  If I was forced to fish this situation I would be fishing almost totally out of the current and deep in structure while sitting on spots for a long time to draw that sluggish fish out.
