Saguaro Lake

Rating - Good   

Saturday, Jun 15 2019
As the weather warms, shift to working plastics in deeper water using Texas rigs, Carolina rigs and dropshot. Using a dropshot rig with purple or morning dawn-colored Roboworms can be productive. When focusing on largemouth bass, fish near shady areas with overhangs or drop-offs. When water temperatures rise, look for jumping shad and toss your line in. Yellow bass are abundant throughout the lake and fishing should be great. Try using jigs, spoons, spinners, small crankbaits, minnows and worms. During warmer months, yellow bass swim in 1014 feet of water off major outside points of the lake or prominent submerged shelves or ledges adjacent to shorelines. Schools 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. For 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.
