Anglers Report for Watson Lake arizona

Watson Lake - Prescott, AZ (Yavapai County)

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

It was in late May, but Don S. shared this picture, and report, from Watson Lake:

My son Dylan and I were camping with his Boy Scout Troop at Watson Lake in Prescott.

I caught a good size trout right to the left of the boat launch area using a worm floated off the bottom. Then about 10 minutes later I caught the largemouth bass in the same area, on the same rig, and a No. 6 trout hook! It was very interesting to say the least. I also had another what I believe was an even bigger bass on a little while later, but it broke my 6-pound test line. I released the bass and we cooked and ate the trout that evening at camp.
