At Lake Pleasant on Saturday, Chris D. reported, "The bite is slow, but it’s there. Caught most of my fish in 15 to 20 feet on rock walls and points. Only got one keeper in the boat, lost two at the net. There were a lot of shorts caught. I caught them on drop shot and Ned Rig." Chris posted a photo of his catch in the Fish AZ Facebook Group. Remember, the arm of the Agua Fria River of Lake Pleasant will be closed for the annual bald eagle nesting season from December 15 thru June 15 unless otherwise noted.
