Kaibab Lake (Williams)
Louis F.: Fished Kaibab Lake on Sunday for 5 hours with the family. All-in-all, we caught 39 fish (34 rainbow trout and 5 crappie). We kept 18 trout, as seen in the photo, and threw the rest back.
The 5 crappie and 18 trout were caught trolling on the boat using everything from worms, Joe’s Flies Strikers, grubs on a jig, and even PowerBait.
The remaining 16 were caught on the shore with garlic PowerBait on the bottom. I caught 15 of the trout and 4 crappie from the boat myself, but lost another five reeling them in and couldn’t connect on 30-plus hits.
Other than the wind blowing the boat all around, it was a fantastic day of fishing! Even my 2 year-old-son was able to catch his first trout.
