Note: Picacho Lake/Reservoir has been reported dry in the reviews below:
Conveniently located in the heart of Arizona, Picacho Reservoir can offer some of the best bass fishing in the entire state. While record-breaking heat may drive many anglers from its water, those who brave the soaring temperatures regularly return with stories of broken rods, incredible hits and catches of up to twenty fish a day, including some in the 5-pound class.
Arizona fishermen rarely talk about Picaho Reservoir. Instead they deliberately "forget" all about its productive depths. They hope the unmarked route will remain unmarked. An hour north of Tucson and only 12 miles from Casa Grande, this lake could well be area anglers' best-kept secret. -G.J. Sagi, from the essential travel handbook Fishing Arizona
