Saguaro Lake

Rating - Good   

Sunday, Dec 01 2019
Largemouth bass are present in all sizes and fishing for them is expected to be good throughout the fall. As the weather cools and fish become more active, shift to fishing shallower and using topwater lures. When in doubt throw a live worm on the bottom and see what bites!Yellow bass are abundant throughout the lake and fishing should be great. Try using jigs, spoons, spinners, small crankbaits, minnows and worms. Schools of yellow bass look for groups of shad, so if the bite slows, dont be too impatient to move off a good point youve located. Use sonar from a boat to locate shad groups more precisely yellow bass are not far behind. They may be below or to the side of schools. Pitch your lure adjacent to or drop it through the school, allowing it to settle to the bottom. Many times bass take the lure on the way down and you wont feel a bite until you reel in and tighten your line.If you crave catfish, set your line near the bottom and use worms, minnows and chicken livers as bait. Try fishing for catfish where water flows into the lake from a side canyon, especially if the side canyon waters flow into a deep hole.For shore anglers, try fishing along the docks and shore near the second ramp. You also can follow a trail beyond the docks that winds along a cliff from which you can fish. Butcher Jones Recreational Area is another shore-access fishing site that has a trail you can fish along as well as a side cove along the cliffs.
