Send your fishing reports and pictures to BFishing@AZGFD.gov
Brandon R.: Fishing at Bartlett lake remains hot! Eleven year old Kyla from Anthem AZ caught her first flathead catfish around 11 p.m. on Saturday (9/29/18) in 20 feet of water fishing from shore using a circle hook and a small carp as bait. Bait fish were most active between 1-3 p.m. using small hooks and corn.
When Kyla was asked how it felt…. She said… “I’m not going to lie – I thought the pole was going to get ripped out of my hands and go into the water.”
Kyla is thankful the summer temps are dropping and looks forward to fishing more often.
