Fishing Report: Colorado River waters and Lake Mead striper
(Send your fishing reports and photos to BFishing@azgfd.gov)
Anthony M.: My son Joe caught this 18-inch striper at Temple Bar on Nov. 20. He’s from Alaska so this is his first striper.
Colorado River waters
With the rainbow trout stocking back in full swing, anglers of all ages are catching fish. The Willow Beach hatchery just did a trout plant at Rotary Park and I have been hearing of some great fish catches.
Spinners were working well the first day, and PowerBait and nightcrawlers are bringing in limits. A reminder that the limit for trout here along the Colorado River below Davis Dam is 5 fish. Our local anglers Gabriel Rosales and soon-to-be 4-year-old Adrian were able to come and share their catch of our rainbow trout.
This father/son team was fishing from shore and using PowerBait to land these rainbows. The striper bite has been a bit slow and I am sure our weather has some to do with that.
I have heard that the casino area has been a good area for a few in the 4-to 7-pound range.
Community Park has such a great shoreline that both stripers and a few trout are sure to be waiting for that special bait or your favorite lure to bring in those fish. So when you are having some success please stop in and share. Thanks for all of your support see you soon.
