Here’s the latest from your fellow anglers:

Canyon Lake

Winter bass fishing in Arizona can remain fair to good despite colder water temperatures, something that makes Arizona a fishing destination during the winter of freeze.

John S.: Winter bass fishing at Canyon Lake!  Caught late afternoon using Roboworm dropshot at about 15 feet.

Lynx Lake


Brandon R. of Surprise: Fished Lynx on Sunday, Jan 8. Lake level is high. Excess water has been running over the spillway for the last 5 days.

Fishing off the bank is limited due to water level. Found a nice point to fish from. Water clarity is medium to low visibility. Used PowerBait Nuggets in chartreuse glitter and rainbow on about a 3 foot leader.

Have to cast toward the center, as the trout are in deeper water.

Caught 10 rainbows in a 6-hour period, with an average length of 12-16 inches. Very surprised, as change in water levels tend to throw off the bite there. Will wait until levels recede a bit to have more options of where to fish. All in all, a very good day of fishing!

Riverview Lake (Mesa)


“Tul” Tuileva:  This fish (rainbow trout) was caught on Friday, Jan. 6, and weighed 2.1 pounds and was 18 inches long.
