Here’s the latest from your fellow anglers (click on the water for directions):

Lake Pleasant

lakeplezbass

Scott L.: Caught this last night (Tuesday, Feb. 14) out at Lake Pleasant in a cove using a cut of anchovie total length was 20 inches. I couldn’t weigh it.

We were fishing with frozen anchovies hoping for some catfish or stripers but hooked this instead. I love fishing in Arizona.

Desert Breeze Lake (Chandler)

dbtrout

Todd B.:  Fished Desert Breeze Lake today (Sat., Feb. 11) for 2 hours in the afternoon. My first time to the lake and I am in love with both the beautiful park and  the lake itself. I was using an ultralight rod throwing small Blue Fox spinners.

Countless bites and landed a few decent sized trout around 12-13 inches. I saw other anglers plunking with little success. In these smaller bodies of water, my best luck is always with spinners or spoons.

Spinners and spoons are good because you can use them to search for the fish, while covering each inch of the lake in a couple of hours. I tried a few sizes of lures ranging from Nos. 2- 0s. My best action came on No. 1s.

Thanks AZGFD for the many community waters close to home.

Fain Lake (Prescott Valley)

Michael W.: Another great day of fishing at Fain Lake!  In 5 hours of fishing, I caught and released 95 beautiful rainbow trout, ranging from 9-12 inches.  Fish caught from right corner of dock at a depth of 18 inches to 4 feet, on 1.5 inch crappie tubes.  Weather Conditions: Cool and partly cloudy. Water conditions: stained.

Gilbert Riparian

Anonymous: My husband slayed this guy on Feb. 8 at the Gilbert Riparian on soft bait.

Parker Canyon Lake

parkercanyonbass

Rod: Hope each of you are well and able to fully enjoy these 70-degree temperatures.  70 degrees in February, wow!  Anyhow I managed to get on the water just about noon today, right when the winds were building up.  I got in some good rowing exercise.  The winds were below my no-float threshold of 20 mph.  They built up later on to make me question my decision to goof about in the dinghy.

Anyhow it turned out I caught three fish in 3 hours of fishing.  Small, medium, and extra largemouth!  Sorry no measurements (I’m pretty sure the last two were well over 5 pounds), but I’ve got photos and memories.  I can tell you that they were all caught using a 2-inch grub on a 1/32-ounce jig on 4-pound mono.  All of them were really fun using the ultra-lite rig!  Talk about a full load on the pole.

What is more challenging is to get the dinghy positioned for a proper photo.  That wind was blowing me about while trying to get a proper photo using the self timer on the camera.

A great beginning to a new year of fishing!

 

Copper Sky Lake (Maricopa)

20170114_114125

Domingo S.:  This was caught at the fishing clinic at Maricopa Park last month (Saturday, Jan. 14).

Here’s the latest from your fellow anglers (click on the water for directions):

Desert Breeze Lake

img_0187Dave P.: This Incentive trout was caught at Desert Breeze Park. It started to rain and when this double rainbow appeared in the sky.

Shortly after, this rainbow trout hit the line like a ton of bricks.

My son Bryce Marco Permuy had a blast landing the fish. Tight lines is always the answer!

Tempe Kiwanis Lake

kiwanistrout2

  • Craig S.:  I’d been going to Kiwanis Lake to fish for the last stocking for a change of scenery and for its ease of getting around as I have a spinal injury.

    My third trip (Jan. 18) I fished for about 6 hours in different spots/seats etc. to try and stay comfortable throughout the day. I’d seen 12 3-ish pounders already taken and who knows how many others I didn’t. I was about to rap up yesterday (Jan. 17) around 4 o’clock and just as I picked up the rod I got the hit! At first, I thought I had hooked a cat. It was pulling good and stayed down.

    There was an easy 25-plus yards of line out. My poles all have 6-pound line with slider weights and small treble with PowerBait (salmon eggs) on one and the other had a crawler with a tiny white PowerBait ball to look like mouse tail. After about 10 minutes I got to see it and “Wow.” I felt so good and reinvigorated after landing it as this is the biggest trout I’ve ever had.

    I have a Berkeley scale and it was 3.4 pounds on it. Caught Jan. 18 around 4:40 p.m. Best I’ve felt in a few weeks and today I’m still feeling better than average.

    incentivedark

  • Damien B.  Caught Friday, Jan. 15, a big rainbow caught at Kiwanis Park. Caught on a gold Kastmaster.

 

Rio Vista Pond (Peoria)

Arizona fishing report: The Reel Deal

Although reports have slowed as Christmas creeps, the fishing likely has not slowed at certain low- to mid-elevation lakes.

For one, trout fishing in Community waters is one of the best options in the state. We’ve stocked the “core” Community waters — see the schedule.  One angler reported catching a 4-pound bass this week from Red Mountain Lake.

Also, the Lower Salt River — our No. 1-ranked fishin’ hole for this winter — and Saguaro Lake (pictured above) make a great one-two punch since they’re located close to each other.  Try nightcrawlers (on a dropshot rig if you’re able) for largemouth bass, yellow bass, bluegill and even catfish.

See a recent report for crappie tips — they have been caught in fairly shallow water (15 feet) at lakes such as Roosevelt Lake. Fishing for crappie has been poor at Alamo Lake — but that should change as water temperatures cool.

(Send your Angler Reports to BFishing@AZGFD.gov —
one will be selected as Catch of the Week)

Stocking report

This week we were scheduled to stock the “core” Community fishing waters, as well as Mingus Lake, Goldwater Lake, Canyon Lake, the Lower Salt River, Parker Canyon Lake, Patagonia Lake, and Pena Blanca Lake. See the schedule.

These are confirmed stockings from last week:

Rainbow trout

Monday, Dec. 12 — Goldwater Lake, Verde River (middle). Tuesday, Dec. 6 — Cluff Reservoir #3, Roper Lake, Dankworth Ponds, Fortuna Pond, Redondo Lake. Monday, Dec. 5 — Apache Lake, Deadhose Lake.

See the full schedule.

It’s winter trout and crappie time.

Crappie anglers: the Topock Marsh (close to Needles along the Colorado River) can provide some nice crappie fishing as well. This is also a superb place to see migrating waterfowl (maybe take along a shotgun or camera, or both).

See last week’s report for more crappie tips.

prescotttrout

This is Rob’s holdover rainbow trout from Watson Lake that was 22 inches in length, and weighed 4 pounds, and 2 ounces using cheese PowerBait.  Rob usually prefers using the Super Duper Spoons but said the PowerBait has worked better lately.

More trout-lights: Fishing for trout in Community waters can be some of the best fishing in the state.  Our “core” waters are scheduled to be stocked next week.

Winter bassin’ in AZ

Bass are scattered in many desert lakes. Wintertime bass fishing can mean fishing is hot one day, slow the next. Cover a lot of water and try numerous presentations.

On calm nights, night fishing for stripers can be productive at places like Pleasant and Havasu.

Finally – see our top 5 fishing waters for this winter.

Stocking report

This week we are scheduled to stock the Deadhorse Lakes, Apache Lake, Cluff Pond, Dankworth Pond, Roper Lake, Fortuna Pond and Redondo Pond.  Check all the stocking schedules.

These are confirmed stockings from last week:

Rainbow trout

Thursday, Dec. 1 — Watson Lake; Community waters: Alvord Lake, Desert West Lake, Pioneer Lake,  Surprise Lake, Rio Vista Pond, Cortez Lake, Encanto Lake, Steele Indian School Pond, Papago Ponds (1, 2 & 3), Evelyn Hallman Pond, Freestone Pond, Red Mountain Lake, Green Valley Lakes, Chaparral Lake, Riverview Lake, Tempe Kiwanis Lake, Desert Breeze Lake, Veterans Oasis Lake, Copper Sky Lake, Lakeside Lake, Sahuarita Lake, Kennedy Lake, Silverbell Lake,

Wednesday, Nov. 30 — Goldwater Lake, Luna Lake.

See the full schedule.

 

High country ice-cover reports

See the White Mountains section in the full report for the ice conditions. Woods Canyon and Willow Springs lakes are fishable and have thawed a bit this week – go get a tiger trout state record. See our Catch of the Week below –- it’s the latest hook-and-line state record tiger trout caught Dec. 4 at Willow Springs Lake.

Flagstaff-area lakes Upper Lake Mary, Kinnikinick, Ashurst, Frances Short, Dogtown, Cataract, City, Santa Fe, Whitehorse) are partially frozen and not really fishable. Get ready for spring when trout lakes law because fishing could be epic – especially at Dogtown and Kinnikinick.

Be sure to check the Arizona Department of Transportation website for the latest road closures.

Arizona fishing report: The Reel Deal

Get “out like trout” for maybe your final chance to fish most high country waters. There have been reports of thin ice forming on lakes such as Woods Canyon Lake. Be careful — we consider all ice on Arizona lakes unsafe.

Winter weather can of course be detrimental to travel. Motorists traveling in Arizona’s high country need to be aware of some annual closings. Be sure to check the Arizona Department of Transportation website for the latest road closures. Other highlights (or frozen notes):

  • Big Lake is 50-percent ice-covered and there is minimal fishing from shore — boats are not able to be launched.
  • FR 105 to Woods Canyon Lake is closed and so boats cannot be launched. But anglers can still walk in and fish Woods Canyon.
  • The stores at Woods Canyon and Big Lake are closed for the winter.

Submit your tiger trout state record

tiger-trout-nicholas-tochko-2016-record

Nicholas Tochko caught this catch-and-keep state record tiger trout, an 8-incher taken in May from Carnero Lake.

The average size of tiger trout at Woods Canyon and Willow Springs lakes? 10 inches. Go catch a tiger and submit your record before tiger trout-stocked lakes (Woods Canyon, Willow Springs and Becker — Carnero is ice-covered) become completely iced over. We’ve received just three applications for state record tigers.

See the “White Mountains” section in the full report for details of ice cover and fishing tips. Once again, we consider all ice on lakes unsafe.

Finally, see a video about catching tiger trout at Willow Springs Lake.

AZ crappie report

Consider targeting sporting crappie populations at Alamo, Bartlett and Roosevelt. Might not be banner crappie-fishing conditions just yet — but it’s worth a shot. As the water temperatures lower, the crappie will congregate into large schools in open water that can be up to 50 feet deep or so. The crappie formations, or schools, look like inverted pyramids (or Christmas trees … ), with the most active fish at the top, around 15 or 20 feet deep.

Catch a window of stable weather for crappie fishing.

The two primary strategies for catching these crappie are to use your fish finder, locate a school, sit over it, and slowly jig a 1/16- or even a 1/32-ounce jighead with curly tail or other small grub, Roadrunner or maybe a marabou jig. The other is slow trolling (1.5 mph) crappie jigs or even small crankbaits. Or combine the two — trolling until you get a bite, then vertically jig.

Be sure to check the stocking schedules.  Community Fishing Program lakes and ponds continue to get frequent trout stockings – see some tips.

Arizona fishing report: The Reel Deal

For some anglers, the super moon earlier this week helped trigger super fishing. (Or was at least something cool to stare at until that next bite.)

More importantly, it’s transition time. Winter’s stomping on the door mat.

Cooler temperatures means time is ticking on trout fishing opportunities in the high country, flathead catfish are fattening up for the winter, and soon, bass metabolism will slow.

Waters temperatures in many desert lakes are in the mid-to-high 60s.

Other highlights:

Striper fishing doesn't get much better in Arizona than at Lake Mohave.
Striper fishing doesn’t get much better in Arizona than at Lake Mohave.

 

    • Trout are back in Community waters! See when and where they’re being stocked.
    • Jigging spoons, or dropping nightcrawlers, for yellow bass in the Salt River-chain lakes will be a good option when these fish head into deeper water.
    • Crappie fishing is reportedly fair-to-good at Roosevelt and Apache lakes.
    • Striper fishing is excellent at Lake Mohave. The above picture includes Kenan (right) and his 5.84-pound striper taken with a top-water lure.
    • Looking for a trophy trout opportunity? Try Becker Lake in the White Mountains. Our recent survey showed that 58 percent of rainbows caught there were 18 inches in length or greater.  See the White Mountains full report for special regulations that are in place at Becker.
    • Finally, at Canyon Lake, construction has begun on the Boulder Creek Recreation Area fishing pier. It should be finished by late December.

No need to go to an office or tackle shop for licenses — grab a license online, 24/7 (and help conserve all species of wildlife).

Here’s the latest from your fellow anglers (updated Nov. 17):

Frye Mesa Reservoir

fryemesagila

Jim A.: Made a first trip to Frye Mesa reservoir on Wed., Nov. 9. Gorgeous little lake on a beautiful day. Caught and released two of these gorgeous fish. Lost another with a few more strikes. Hint: don’t follow Google map or directions on Coronado forest website.

Call Stafford ranger station — a very nice lady had perfect directions. Road easily driven with high clearance vehicle.

Saguaro Lake

catfish-7_5-lbs-5

David C. of Mesa: Early Sunday morning (Nov. 13), just before the sun rose on  Saguaro Lake, I hooked a really nice channel catfish that weighed in at 7.5 pounds.

Caught on a chicken liver sitting on the bottom in about 25 feet of water. I knew I had a big one right away when my pole doubled over with line stripping off my reel.

It took a minute or two to get him close enough to the surface to see the outline and that white belly, but then he took off again, straight to the bottom, stripping line away.

Three times he did this until finally we got him into the net. It was an exciting few minutes that made my day! The pic I included is poor quality but it’s the best one of the few we took. And although I’m dressed for the White Mtns, it really wasn’t all that cold out there! Thanks and best of luck on the water!

 

Woods Canyon Lake

woodscanyonrainbows

Nicholas J.: Here are some pictures from our fishing trip on Thursday, Nov. 10, to Woods Canyon Lake. We caught a total of 12 all day — one of them was a tiger trout. We used PowerBait about 3.5 feet below a bobber and had good results.

 

Lower Salt River

Javier L.: Rainbow trout fingerling.

 

Show Low Lake

showlowbow

Brandon N.: My wife (Veronica) and I spent some time last week up in the Show Low/Pinetop area.

Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t great and it rained most of the time. My wife sat in the truck the majority of the time while I fished in the rain.

On Friday, as the storm cleared and the sun appeared through the clouds right before sunset, she decided to make a few casts with a rooster tail in-line spinner. Next thing I know I look over and she’s fighting a beautiful 16-inch rainbow trout! Highlight of the trip. It would be awesome if she made the weekend round-up!

There are only a few weeks left before winter conditions prevail in the high country, so if you’re looking for scents of pine, scenes of eagles and tight lines from trout, go now.

The trout bite is hot at spots such as Dogtown, Kinnikinick, Reservation, and Willow Springs lakes.

Ready to catch the elusive tiger trout? They were biting on Monday afternoon, rising to the surface in shallow water at Willow Springs Lake for dry flies.

See a video from Monday of a tiger trout wrecking the surface to take a dry fly:

Speaking of trout, the first winter trout stockings are coming next week to Community fishing waters. See the schedule.

On Monday, Oak Creek and Saguaro Lake were stocked with trout.

See all the angler reports, because there are a ton of fishing options from carp to monster largemouth bass and flathead catfish.

Arizona Fishing Report: The Reel Deal

Days are getting shorter, air temperatures are cooling, and with the transition into fall, it can be a bit difficult to pinpoint the exact location of fish. In general, keep moving. Cover a lot of water, and try different areas of the water column and various bait presentations.

Or just go get some trout. Winter stockings have already begun for rainbows. We just stocked Davis Dam on the lower Colorado River (Senator McCain helped!). They’re coming to some of the prime Phoenix and Tucson-area lakes beginning the first week of November.

See the schedule.

Also, as we head into November, keep an eye on water temperatures in the high country. Each year, trout fishing picks up dramatically in the White Mountains when water temperatures are in the low-to-high 50s (depending on elevation). This is the ideal temperature range for trout and they will be actively trying to add weight before the onset of winter. Because there will be little difference between surface water temperature and water temperature in deep water, trout will be found at any depth.

Fishing in Arizona just got a boost with a big stocking of rainbow trout into the lower Colorado River at Davis Dam. These trout can be caught on a variety of lures and baits -- many anglers wait a week before heading to their favorite pocket on the river.

By the way, let’s remember a reason that supporting conservation of all species of wildlife in Arizona is so crucial. The Arizona Game and Fish Department believes that future generations should have the same recreational opportunities, and the same abundance of memory-etching wildlife, that we do. We do not receive state tax dollars. So we rely on your participation, such as license sales and stuff like I Support Widlife memberships (includes real-time stocking updates and a great mapping app).

Then all you have to do is fish or engage in shooting sports or get out on a hunt — not a bad deal.
