Lake Pleasant Fishing Report

Lake Pleasant - New River , AZ

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

Water levels have been falling (down 25 feet over the past 3 weeks). Best bet lately is casting and watching for top-water activity or locating schools. The nighttime bite will be great during this full moon, but fishing with submersible lights will be a bit less effective. Trolling for stripers has been hit and miss. Stripers still are being caught in 50-80 feet of water. Try Castle Creek and Cole Bay. The evening top-water bite has been better than during mornings. Striper boils have reportedly been somewhat short-lived.

But these boils should pick up – read a Fish AZ blog article about top-water boils.
