Ashurst Lake Report

Ashurst Lake - Flagstaff, AZ (Coconino County)

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

This is the time of year when the campgrounds close; check with the Coconino National Forest while planning your trip if you plan to camp at the lake. Fall is an excellent time to target trout on Ashurst Lake. For bait anglers, PowerBait and worms fished on the bottom are the best approach. A slow retrieve with small lures such as Joe’s flies, Kastmaster, Panther Martins, Roostertails, and Mepps are all excellent choices. Good fly patterns include: #10 bead headed black, brown, or olive Simi-seal leeches and wooly buggers, zebra midge, mayfly, dragonfly, damselfly, and hoppers. Only boats with a single 10-horsepower motor (or less) or a single electric 
motor are allowed on Ashurst Lake. The limit is 4 trout. The lake is about 80% full and water clarity is excellent. Rainbow trout were stocked last week.
