With campground, bathrooms, fish cleaning station and boat rentals, Show Low Lake is a great place to get away from it all while having amenities close by. Rainbow trout are stocked in spring and summer, while naturally reproducing walleye, sunfish, bass and channel catfish provide fishing opportunities the rest of the year. Fingerling channel catfish were stocked this year to increase populations in the future. Use nightcrawlers or chicken livers on bottom to target catfish. In fall, water stratification breaks up thanks to cooler days. Trout remaining after the last stocking are more active and disperse throughout the lake.  Fishing for trout is best in the morning and in the evening as the sun sets; use worms, PowerBait, or small lures.

The AZ State Record Walleye was caught here weighing in at 16 pounds! Use fish mimics throughout the water column, especially in the evenings and near rocky structure. 2018 spring population surveys showed nice smallmouth bass; the largest fish was over 3 pounds and found right by the dock. It’s time for Show Low Lake to produce another state record and fall after summer crowds have left is a great time to do it!
