Canyon Lake (AZ) - Apache Junction, AZ

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

Lake elevation is 1,657 feet (94-percent full). The lake level has risin 3 feet since last week, and Canyon was stocked this week with rainbow trout.

The Tonto National Forest has closed the fishing dock at the Boulder Recreation, possibly until Sept. 5, 2015. See more information.

Like Saguaro, anglers can draw reaction strikes using jerk baits, crankbaits and, at certain times, spinnerbaits and top-water baits can really come into play. The jerk bait is the main bait.

Matching the hatch can be particularly crucial. Use small baits, such as a small swim bait on a -ounce jighead.
