Angler Report: Ashurst Lake
Send your fishing reports and pictures to BFishing@AZGFD.gov
Matt R.: Pilar and I fished Ashurst Lake on Sunday 9/22/19 from 9 am – 2 pm. We landed 40 rainbow trout between the two of us ranging from 12- 20 inches with most of the fish around 15 inches. We had the best luck slowly trolling the eastern shoreline (opposite the boat launch) with Joe’s flies (black and olive) with #12 olive leeches tied ~ 16 inches above them. We observed shoreline anglers also having success on lures and PowerBait on the bottom. The cooling temperatures seems to have kicked off the fall fishing up north. I am excited for the next couple of months of fishing. This is a photo of Pilar with the big fish of the day. Enjoy!
