Send your fishing reports and pictures to BFishing@AZGFD.gov

Here’s the latest from your fellow anglers:

Lake Pleasant


Here is a picture (featured)  of the fish my son Larry caught on Oct. 24 at about 5 p.m. fishing from shore. He was using a plastic worm on the points east of 10 lane. Weighed 8.45 pounds.

Reservation Lake


Anonymous: I caught this fatty 4.8-pound, 19-inch rainbow out of Reservation Lake. Now is the time to get out and catch some trout. They are in a feeding frenzy. I caught 47 trout over 2 days on Tuesday and Wednesday. Be sure to dress warm. It was 17 degrees when I woke up on Wednesday morning at Reservation.

Kinnikinick Lake


Jacob: Fishing Kinnikinick lake last weekend, caught 10 trout within the first couple hours on some PowerBait and also caught yellow bullhead on a hot dog (above). Overall great day on the lake.

Apache Lake


Ryan: Pulled in 3 carp — all over 24 inches and 10 pounds. Also caugt two smallmouth bass, one weighing 1 pounds, 11 inches the other 20 inches and 4 pounds (above). Also caught shad and a few bluegill.


Woods Canyon Lake


Sal L.: Took my sons up to Woods Canyon Lake on a cool Saturday morning after a couple of days of rain to give the tiger trout a try. We didn’t get many bites fishing from shore, but did catch three of them – one bit on rainbow PowerBait, and the others hit on flies. Great day though.

Show Low Lake


This 3 year old is a natural! Three stocked rainbows in 30 minutes at Show Low Lake.

    1. Hey Marc. Yes–A protozoan infection called “Ich” hit rainbow trout in Silver Creek over the last several weeks, causing significant stress, some mortalities of trout, and poor fishing; however, that bout of infection has passed. The fish are becoming more active and fishing is picking up, with a couple anglers recently catching up to 20 fish each and big trout breaking tippets again. The fishing should continue to improve as the weather cools further and the population continues to rebound from the infection.
