Fishing At Ashurst Lake Arizona. cc


Ashurst Lake AZ is located about twenty minutes south of Flagstaff off Lake Mary Rd. If you want to cautch rainbow trout or Northern Pike Ashurst Lake offers action from the shore or from a boat. You can try your luck with spoons or waterdogs from a boober for Northern Pike and watever there biting on that day for the trout. There is a little trailer right when you enter Ashurst lake that sells trout bait, small tackle and refreshment. I've herd the south side of the lake in the tall grass is were the most action is, but the lake is so small you might just try walking around it and fishing it all.

Just spent five days there My wife drove up separately from me so she could return to work.

During the five days I caught about 10 all together using rainbow power bait. It was quite windy and it tore up my awning. The fish I caught were about 10 inches long. In other web sites I see that they say "There is a place to buy bait and soft drinks, water" There was no such place.

Not enough to walk onto and fish. Ashurst Lake is definitely not for ice fishing. In the new game and fish book, it says that you may be able to fish from shore at times during the winter if the roads are not bad.
