Water Ranch Lake (Gilbert)
Alyssa I.: Hello … Saturday, Jan. 13 2018 we had amazing luck fishing urban lake at Water Ranch (Gilbert). was about 11 a.m. and we hadn’t caught one yet. I put on some fresh PowerBait rainbow dough bait. And about 45 seconds in, the bell went off — I caught a rainbow trout 3.74 pounds, a monster. It’s also my first fish out of this lake … it was amazing.
Just wanted to share that story … looking forward to this weekend’s day of fishing. Maybe we can get the 8-pounder my fiance read about.
