Bartlett Lake Fish Report

Bartlett Lake - Carefree, AZ (Maricopa County)

by Arizona Game & Fish Department

Lake elevation is 1,743 feet, 46 % full. Lake elevation is rising quickly. The main ramp is open and on Saturday was 10 feet under water. Gary Senft, a Bass Pro at the Mesa Bass Pro Shops, said most bass are in post-spawn. He said one angler reported fishing from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., throwing dropshots and catching 12 largemouth bass. If you have any reports from Bartlett, please send them to The Arizona Fishing Guides previously reported that the lake was very low, but is starting to fill up quickly. Fishing here is pretty good and fish can be caught on a drop shot or by dragging a jig on long points. The reaction bite can be good on some mornings, but seems to go away pretty quick.
