Night fishing is picking up. Get away from any jet skiiers and target coves for best largemouth bass options. Texas-rigged Trick worms, lipless crankbaits and Carolina-rigged crawdad imitations have been effective. Cover a lot of water at Saguaro and get ready for possible monster bass. Catching 5-pounders right now is not uncommon. Frog patterns also can be effective.

Typically, largemouth bass fishing is fair to good when the recreational boating pressure is lower, especially at night. This is also a great place to take the youngsters at night for some sunfish action on one of the many fishing piers. Try meal worms or night crawlers under a bobber.

The lake is 1,527 feet (95-percent full.) There is a swimming advisory for the Butcher Jones area.
