APACHE LAKE - Lake elevation is 1,909 feet (95 percent full).

Has been good for high numbers of bass lately, but Canyon and Saguaro have reportedly been better for size.

Try working the major points using soft plastic crayfish like lures worked along the bottom. Crankbaits can also work well at times. You might catch a few good-sized smallies -- please practice catch-and-release on these fish, which are in the comeback mode.

Walleye fishing should be decent at first and last light using night crawler rigs, or jigs tipped with worms. Apache is also full of some really nice yellow bass. Try gold KastMasters or yellow/gold Rooster Tails. Catfishing should be good.
