Lake Pleasant

Rating - Good   

Tuesday, Oct 12 2021
For Striper/White Bass try anchovies along with small swim baits, rigs, and spoons. Early morning use walking top water baits or small poppers. For largemouth use small crankbaits or jerkbaits. Drop shot, swim baits, and jigs have been working in 10-40ft of water. The natural worm colors are working well for anglers especially when the water is clear. Flathead catfish are more common in the Aqua Fria River arm or by the dam.

Access Info


LAKE PLEASANT – (Lake elevation 1,665 feet, 61 % full)
From Striper Snatcher Guide Service: “The water level is 61-percent full with a water temp of 78 degrees on the south side and 82 on the north side; credit to 800cfs of water being pumped into the lake, coupled with cooler night temps.
After fishing almost every day for two years, I have finally found a good crappie pattern, catching them on spoons in the river channel in trees where schools of shad are close by.
