Lake elevation is 1,908 feet (93-percent full). Bass fishing is good. You might also find bass chasing shad at the surface, especially at first light. Try working the major points using soft plastic crayfish like lures worked along the bottom. Crankbaits can also work well at times.

A few good sized smallies are being caught -- please practice catch-and-release on these fish, which are in the comeback mode.

Walleye fishing should be decent at first and last light using nightcrawler rigs, or jigs tipped with worm.

Apache is also full of some really nice yellow bass. Try gold KastMasters or yellow/gold Rooster Tails.

Catfishing should be good. Carp fishing is very good. You might even catch one of the monster buffalo fish.
