The main body of the lake reports have been very good for bass and crappie. Stripper's are busting shad! Bass are shallow currently chasing baitfish and poppers. Try some baitfish imitations on intermediate line. The catfish bite has also continued to remain strong as well. The catfish have also been hitting on night crawlers and stink baits as well. If you're looking to do more active fishing then senkos, drop shots and skirted jigs for the bass. As for the crappie the bite has started to pick up with anglers having the best success on 2 inch grubs bounced off the bottom. Crappie fishing in the Agua Fria arm has been good try shad or minnows at night around submerged trees and brush.
