Alert: Bald eagle closure at Agua Fria arm of Lake Pleasant lifts Friday
The bald eagle closure in the Agua Fria arm of Lake Pleasant will lift Friday, June 15.
That means boaters will be able to boat from the main body of the lake into this area of the Agua Fria arm.
This seasonal closure is typically Dec. 15-June 15.
Water level at Pleasant is 1,684 feet and 81 percent full.
The Agua Fria arm of Lake Pleasant is an excellent fishing spot for abundant white, striped and largemouth bass. The top-water bite at Pleasant has been picking up but anglers will need to hit the water by 5 a.m. We are also on a new moon phase (began today) and so using those submersible lights at night will be more effective.
Note that vehicular access to the Agua Fria Conservation Area is still closed.
