    Best lake in AZ for walleye?

    What's the best place to go to catch a walleye in Arizona? I've seen a few lakes including Powell but catch rates are low.

    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...

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

No offense, I'm looking forward to fishing AZ, you have a much divers landscape than we do and I love going to the lakes here. Just...
