ngler Report: “The bass bite is on! I love encouraging others to get outdoors. I caught these four bass off my kayak in a little over a week … drop-shotting plastics. Many bass are in a post-spawn mode and with some windy weather this weekend, fishing could be tough (like at many Salt River-chain lakes). Top-water action had been picking up with a spell of warmer weather and some anglers were having success with frogs, Pop-r, and Ricos. With a string of predicted 90-degrees temperatures next week, th ssurface action should pick up again. Crappie fishing has slowed.” Majority of bass are in post spawn, as is the case at all central Arizona lakes. Swimmers are cautioned that there have been reported of “swimmer’s itch” at Canyon. See some steps to minimize Swimmer’s Itch at desert lakes. Some anglers are having luck with Texas-rigged baby brush hogs, as well as assorted jerkbaits, top-water lures and jigs, Try fishing in 2-15 feet of water. Canyon is the land of lunkers when it comes to bass. For better numbers, try Bartlett or Saguaro. A new fishing pier is under construction in the Boulder Creek Recreation Area. This pier serves as excellent structure for sunfish. Some anglers have had success throwing dropshot Roboworms in morning dawn near cattails in 10-20 feet of water.
