    Reef Balls will Enhance Fish Habitat at Rosy

    The Arizona Game and Fish Department has been using a crane on a 36-foot pontoon boat to sink fish habitat — critical to anglers' fishing opportunities — into lakes along the Salt River chain in central Arizona. For anglers, this ongoing project will result in better fishing for generations to come. Roosevelt Lake is planned to be the first to receive habitat. These artificial structures and...

    Low-level water releases begin from Verde River

    Interesting to read what they do with water when they have it. "This weekend’s forecast of a return of wet weather to northern and central Arizona has prompted Salt River Project to begin releasing excess water from its two reservoirs on the Verde River to create additional storage capacity and provide maximum flexibility for likely future runoff events, according to a press release. A...

    High flows from Bartlett Lake likely this weekend

    Increased run-off from snow melt due to warmer weather, coupled with a storm forecast for this weekend, could result in releases between 5,000 and 10,000 cfs out of Bartlett Lake this weekend. Already, the Verde River watershed is at more than 184-percent precipitation for the year; Bartlett Lake is at 83-percent full. The flows would likely begin Sunday night, move through Granite Reef Dam...

    Arizona's highest lake water levels in years

    When looking at the lakes controlled by Salt River Project, “Total storage has actually gone from 44 percent on Dec. 15 to 62 percent as of this morning,” said Charlie Ester, the water operations manager at Salt River Project. This is great news when looking at historic lake levels. “We have to go all the way back to 2010 the last time we filled the reservoirs. In the seven years since then,...

    Prescott lakes almost full to capacity

    If you've never had a chance to checkout Watson Lake or Willow Lake in Prescott, this year would be a good time with the high water levels. "Gone are the cracked patches of dirt, the dry boat docks, and the water rings high up on granite formations. For now at least, the low-water traces that are common at Willow and Watson lakes have been replaced with wide expanses of blue water – all...

    Winter striper fishing tips

    If you still have the passion to go after the striped bass, try going from midday (noon to 5 p.m.) when the fish seem to be most active. If you’re able to cast-net live shad, the shad will help cause a bigger bite and more keeper-size fish. Shad can still be found in shallow water near the shores or structure. If you can’t catch shad, use frozen anchovies and don’t forget to chum to attract...
