Lake Pleasant

Rating - Good   

Wednesday, May 12 2021
Striper / white bass have been being caught in decent numbers. Anchovies work well along with small swimbaits, a rigs, and spoons. Early morning use walking topwater baits or small poppers. For largemouth use small swim baits like a keitech or jerkbaits. Drop shot and jigs have been working as well as a swimbait in 30-60ft of water. The natural worm colors are working well for anglers especially when the water is clear. The ned rig has been producing good numbers. Flathead catfish are present throughout the lake but 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.
