Fool Hollow and Show Low Lakes Spring Fish Surveys
Pinetop fisheries biologist surveyed Fool Hollow and Show Low Lakes this week. In both lakes the Walleye were spawning, which is good for future recruitment in the lakes, and also makes for good fishing. Use a Rapala lure or any other fish-like lure. The temperatures in the lakes were up to about 55 degrees. In both Fool Hollow and Show Low Lakes we caught large Smallmouth Bass and Channel Catfish. Northern Pike are at the end of the spawn in Fool Hollow Lake, so try fishing the shallow, weedy coves. We recommend that you take keep these fish; they are a delicious white meat fish. At Show Low Lake the survey found a lot of 8″ Cutthroat Trout.
