    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.

    Future of bait fishing in AZ from AZGFD

    Good article from azgfd about possibly using the native Sonora sucker for bait fishing on a large scale. I personally only ever used minnows for crappie fishing, other than that, I took the bait fish from the lake, mostly bluegills for flatheads. "In recent decades, using live baitfish was the best way to catch your dinner. But with more and more people practicing catch and release,...

    Video: Striper fishing at Lake Pleasant

    This trip at Lake Pleasant we got into a better school of 2 - 4 pound stripers and also got one nice crappie. These stripers are super fun to catch and will put and bend in your rod and make your drag sing on light line. [MEDIA]

    Pics of boat taken out by waves at Lake Pleasant

    Saw this post on the az striper fishing fb page. "Just a reminder that some of these ARIZONA lakes like lake Pleasant are no joke. Lake Pleasant had 45 - 50 mph winds today. This poor guy had to leave his boat behind with 5 foot wipe caps. Be careful be smart. "

    I would like to remind our anglers when asked to make sure to say ‘yes, we are fishing for trout

    More pushing of the trout. Similar thread here about why so much effort is going into Trout vs any other species of fishing in AZ lakes and rivers. New Article from Mohave Valley News below. A few hardy anglers have braved the cold (well, cold for Bullhead City, anyway) weather in their quest for rainbow trout. “The rainbow trout are in,” said Rusty Braun, proprietor of Riviera Marina in...

    Why so much effort stocking trout at desert lakes and rivers?

    Maybe I'm the only one that thinks this but it seems like the game and fish department is pushing trout fishing too much. Was just reading this article that says "According to the state Game and Fish Department (AZGF), Colorado River stakeholders have expressed interest in reducing bag limits for the region’s trout because of an increase in the fish’s popularity among Arizona and Nevada...

    Thai fishing traps

    Saw these cool fishing traps for sale in Thailand. Looks like a good diy project if you have some old nets and water bottles. Basically you cut the tops off the water bottles, glue them to each side of the trap, and leave enough net at the top to close it off and reopen it when you catch some shad. [ATTACH]

    How to keep your catch fresh from the lake to the table

    How many freshwater anglers would flip a lid if the government tried to take away our rights to bring home fish? I know that this Hooked Az writer would drop his pole and pick up a gun in heartbeat if I was told fishing for food would be illegal. Since this is the case and it is our unhindered American right to fish and to bring it home for mounting or eating why then do so many fisherman...

    How big are the bass in Arizona

    So I just moved to Arizona and I've been living in Florida my whole life. Just trying to think about how big to go on the tackle. From what I've read, on average in AZ you get about 1-4 lb large mouths, anything bigger than that might make the news, I'm I right? 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...

    Just fyi, if you haven't though of it, you can go to the lower Salt River and get the bus and bring your own tube and pole and fish + get drunk with the rest of the tuber. This was a few years back, I brought my own tube I picked up at Big5. If was still pretty cold in spring. [MEDIA]
