Lake Pleasant Fishing Report

The Lake is currently 94% of capacity. The CAP has started pumping 456 cfs of water out of the lake. The Surface Water Temperature will be in the mid 60’s this week. Day time high tempertures will be in the 80’s to  for the foreseeable future.  

Lake Pleasant Stripers, White Bass, & Largemouth Bite

Has Slowed Down Recently

This Can Be Attributed To The Latest Cold Front That Hit Arizona At The End Of March, The CAP Stopped Pumping Water Into The Lake, And A Scuba Diving Spear Fishing Tournament That Occurred Last Weekend.

We Have Been Catching Fish Using The Following Techniques:

 By Casting And Slow Rolling Paddle Tail Swimbaits And A Rigs, Spinnerbaits, Suspending Jerkbaits. Fishing Drop Shot Rigs Using Robo Worms. Senkos Fished Wacky Style, Chatterbaits, Texas Rigged Senkos And Cranks. Remember to Keep Your Spoons Ready And Adjust The Speed Of  Your Presentations As The Water Temperatures Are In The Mid 60’s.    

   Here Are Some Examples Of What We Have Been Catching During The Pre Spawn and Spawn On Our Trips On Lake Pleasant!  So, Call Mike Today
