Good Fishing For Stripers & Bass

Lake Pleasant - New River , AZ

Jim N. said bass fishing on Lake Pleasant was very good a few weeks ago. Roboworms, Carolina rigged on light tackle provided fish up to 8 pounds. Got an 18-inch white bass on grubs/jigheads. Caught crappie on small swimbaits (Mister Twister), shads were best.

Reports at Lake Pleasant indicate decent fishing for stripers and largemouth bass.

For stripers, anchovies work well along with small swimbaits, A rigs, and spinnerbaits. For largemouth bass, use small swimbaits or jerkbaits. Drop shot rigs have also been working. The natural worm colors are working well for anglers, especially when the water is clear.
