Send your fishing reports and pictures to BFishing@AZGFD.gov
Here’s the latest from your fellow anglers (see our Fish&Boat map for directions):
James M.: Reeled this guy in at Watson Lake Prescott. Just under 18 inches.
Michael W.: May 3 — non-stop action!!! In 4 hours of fishing, I caught and released 79 rainbow trout, ranging from 7 to 12 inches. All fish caught at southwest cove of lake, on 1.5 inch crappie tubes. Lake recently stocked with rainbow trout. Weather Conditions: Sunny & Clear Water Conditions: Stained.
Dick K.: Took a long time friend, Jerry Corell to Lake Pleasant yesterday. Jerry had never fished for stipers before so we had high hopes the fish would co-operate which they did. We couldn’t find and schooling fish within the first couple hours so we started off trolling live threadfin shad below Off-Shore OR 12 planer boards. Jerry had me at about 8-3 when I passed over a huge school of stripers. Quickly we switched to dropshot rigs and for a couple hours we could hardly keep up! Had a great day with around 35 Stripers. Great introduction to striper fishing, Jerry!
