Here’s the latest from your fellow anglers (click on the water for directions):
Andrew A.: Fished sunrise to 11 a.m. before the lake closed due to the fire on Mt. Lemmon. Caught trout steadily the whole morning with trout-colored rooster tails. A friend and I took our limit.
Jeff H.: Caught this 17-inch rainbow trout April 8 at Woods Canyon Lake. The fish were biting and we caught three!
Ashley G.: Just wanted to submit a monster (redear sunfish) I caught this weekend on Lake Havasu!! 16 1/2 inches and 5.02 pounds!
Matthew D.: Big fan of the blog and articles. My brother and I caught these channel cats at Chaparral Lake on a simple bobber-and-nightcrawlers. We were fishing about 15-20 feet from the shore. We started at sunrise but the fishing really started biting around 9-10 as it was warming up.
Anthony G.: I just happened to catch this guy at Red Mountain Park on April 4. Used 40-pound spider wire line. Bent the net in half taking it out of the water. My shoe size is 13 for comparison.
Dave P. caught this Big Fish of the Year, catch-and-release smallmouth bass that measured 23 1/2 inches.
Dan G.: Holden Gurka reelin’ em in a Saguaro Lake!
