    your favorite spots in the Phoenix East Valley

    Hi all, New to this site, so glad to find it. For the most part, I've been fishing the East Valley's fishing areas (i.e. Desert Breeze, Veterans Oasis a bit, McQueen Pond, and the ASU research park lakes....the summer affords me some extra time, so I wanted to get input as to what areas are worth visiting here in the East Valley....doesn't matter, lakes, ponds, canals around Tempe, Chandler,...

    Winter crappie fishing tips from Rim Country Custom Rods

    Many anglers have reported spotting huge schools of black crappie on fish-finders at lakes such as Roosevelt and Canyon. Other good lakes to try are Apache and Bartlett. (Crappie fishing at Alamo Lake reportedly is poor.) With some stable winter weather, this can be an excellent time to fish for crappie and they head into deeper waters of our desert impoundments and form large schools. But...

    What gear do I need? Total beginner

    Hello I've been an Arizona resident my whole life - 27 years. I have also never been fishing and would like to start fishing. I live in Tucson and mostly my connection with the outdoors comes from backpack and hunting, both of which I started late in life as an adult a few years ago. Now I think it is time to get a little taste for fishing. I don't think I'd have the schedule to be a...

    Help Lost Seat Back Rest

    Hi, last weekend leaving Parker, the seat back rest from my Ranger boat blew out from Running Man gas station to I-10 on 95 or 72. I think it probably came out on 95 but Im not sure. If someone finds it I would sure like to get it back and would pay a reward/finders fee and shipping to get it back to Tucson. It is light silver with red and grey trim. If someone needs a photo I can text or...

    Lynx Lake & Willow Springs

    I was hoping someone could help confirm if either of these lakes allow you to run a 9.9 motor above a no wake speed? I know the lakes are quite a bit difference in size but I am trying to pick a first time in a boat fishing trip for my boys. The main reason I want somewhere to run above no wake is this is my first time with a used motor I purchased. Also if anyone has other lake suggestions...

    Checklist to get your boat ready for fishing season

If you are an angler and have a boat, it has probably been stored in a garage or under a boat cover for much of the last five months. Well, it’s time to...

    Future of bait fishing in AZ from AZGFD

"In recent decades, using live baitfish was the best way to catch your dinner. But with more and more people practicing catch and release,...

    Looks like Lake Pleasant fishing is picking up quick. Here's a cool video I found from bassinfools/dessertbassin. "Great day of fishing on one of Arizona's clearest lakes. Topwater bite was on all morning due to schools of shad being pushed up by striped and largemouth bass. Its early fall here in Arizona and the fishing couldn't be getting any better! " [MEDIA]
