Lake Pleasant Fish Report

Lake Pleasant - New River , AZ

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

At Lake Pleasant (report courtesy of Sportsman's Warehouse), reports have been good for bass and crappie in the main body of the lake. Stripers are busting shad. Bass are shallow, currently chasing baitfish and poppers. Try some baitfish imitations on intermediate line. The catfish bite has also continued to remain strong. The catfish have been hitting on night crawlers and stink baits as well. If you're looking to do more active fishing, then try Senkos, drop shots and skirted jigs for the bass. As for the crappie, the bite has started to pick up with anglers having the best success on 2-inch grubs bounced off the bottom. Crappie fishing in the Agua Fria arm has been good. Try shad or minnows at night around submerged trees and brush..
