Here’s the latest from your fellow anglers:
Steve G. of Flagstaff with a Sonoran sucker (23 inches, pictured) and a roundtail chub (18 inches).
James B.: Went fishing last weekend at Becker. The latest (in the year) I have ever fished. There was skim ice Friday and Saturday and not fishable, but Sunday afternoon the wind and sun pushed the ice off . My buddy and I caught several in the 18-inch range and one of more than 22 inches. Using red San Juan worms and large simi seal leeches in several colors. Bald eagle was out fishing, too!
Mike R.: Wednesday, Dec. 14, cutthroat trout using nightcrawlers from shore.
Editor’s note: As of Monday, Big Lake was completely iced-over. This time of year, certain lakes in the high country might have certain degrees of ice cover on any given day.
Red Mountain Lake
Jim E.: This is the first keeper largemouth I ever caught at Red Mt. after about 15 years. I had hooked a shad and ended up using it as bait and caught it. It was a nice experience for me because it was my birthday — Monday, Dec. 12. Not sure of the weight but someone that is familiar with bass might give an estimate from the picture. Happy Holidays.
