January Fishing Report submitted (1/24/2018 9:01 pm)
Saguaro Lake has been doing pretty well over the last week and hopefully this Cool Trend will push them back down into their winter depths. We have been catching them anywhere from 30 to 50 feet deep on spoons. Half to 3/4 ounce spoons in Chrome and Gold have been the best. We have definitely caught some quality fish on these.

Canyon Lake has slowed up a little bit due to the cold front but we are still able to catch them. The baits that have been bringing us success have been the small ringtail swimbaits from Arizona Custom Baits on a quarter ounce jig head. Along with those, senkos on the Steep walls have been the ticket for those real lethargic fish that dont know if they want to be deep or shallow

Roosevelt Lake is still doing pretty well for numbers but just not the big ones yet. You can catch them deep on spoons targeting the long tapered points. Another bait that has been working is a half ounce jig anywhere from 10 to 30 ft deep. Keep an eye on your graphs and you will catch them.

Lake Pleasant is doing very well with stripers and some quality Largemouth. We have been catching them in 2 to 4 feet on a ChatterBait using an AFG Force trailer by Arizona Custom Baits. You can also catch them deep in 30 to 50 ft on 3/4 to 1 oz spoons. Look for the birds to catch them shallow and watch your graph to catch them deep.

Bartlett is another good Lake to catch plenty of numbers you can catch these fish shallow on a medium diving Livingston lure crankbait or jerkbait. You can also catch them deep with a dropshot or a jig. The bait we have been catching them the most on is the Arizona Custom Baits slim shot in Scooters special.

Remember, Spring is right around the corner, if you are thinking about booking a trip, be sure to call and reserve your spot soon. Also, be sure to follow to follow fishingarizona on Instagram.

Late Fall Fishing Report submitted (11/23/2017 10:01 am)

Late Fall fishing report: Bartlett lake: The fishing has been medium to good with lots of numbers. Some of the bigger fish being caught on top water. Buzz baits and walking baits are the key. As the sun comes up go to soft plastics Texas rig baits and drop shot in 10-15ft.

Apache lake: Apache has been tough but is slowly back on the incline. Your best bet is to try to find schools deep on spoons.

Roosevelt lake: Roosevelt has been fishing well with lots of numbers, but the size has not shown up just yet. The best way to get the biggest bite has been on top water baits. When you are looking for numbers try catching them deep on spoons and soft plastics.

Saguaro and Canyon lake: Saguaro and Canyon are still putting out numbers of big fish. Most of them have been coming out in the deep grass using a drop shot or a shaky head.

Lake Pleasant: This lake has been fishing extremely well. We are catching big numbers of stripers, white bass and largemouth. Some days you can catch them in 40ft or deeper and other days you can catch them in 3ft of less. Half ounce to 1 ounce spoons and Arizona Custom Baits ringed tail swimbaits in Glimmer shad and Scooters Special have been most productive.

Happy Thanksgiving from The Arizona Fishing Guides

Labor Day Weekend Fishing Report submitted (9/1/2017 12:09 am)
Lake Pleasant is a blast right now. The stripers fishing is awesome with lots of topwater action in the morning and up until early afternoon. While fishing the topwater do not be surprised when you catch a largemouth bass as they are being caught in the middle of the striper boils. You can catch a lot at night right now under a black light with anchovies. We have had a few half day trips with over 75 fish.

Bartlett Lake is still doing great lots of fish coming on reaction baits in the day but slowing down at night.

Saguaro Lake, Congratulations to Arizona Fishing Guides Scooter Griffith and Jim Sandy for their Summer Night championship win. They finished out with three five pounders in their bag and were all caught on an Arizona Custom Baits drop shot worm in Scooters Special. The bite during the day is pretty good on frogs then switch to deep diving crankbaits as the sun comes up.

Canyon lake right now the fishing is best up the river. The most productive trips up there are when throwing the Livingston lures New cherrypicker jerkbait.

Fall Fishing is coming, be sure to get your trips booked today
