Becker Lake Fishing Report

Becker Lake - (Apache County)

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

Fishing is good. Try fishing with midges, minnow patterns, wooly buggers or pistol petes. Tiger trout catch rates are increasing. A recent survey found many colorful rainbow trout in the 18-20 in range and colorful tiger trout in the 11-14 inch range. Tiger trout are more aggressive and seem to like to chase their food, so try streamers stripped fast. Also, try fishing for them in rocky substrate. Becker Lake is open to catch-and-release only for trout, artificial fly and lure only; single barbless hooks only. No bait. No trout may be kept. Lake has some ice near the boat ramp, but is 90% open water.
