Striper fishing on Lake Pleasant continues to improve. Surface water temperatures ar approaching the 70 degree mark. Cut anchovies, live shad, swimbaits, suspending jerkbaits are all producing fish. Fish were caught from depths up to 80 feet. The pictures represent my most recent clients. Some of which had never fished for Striper before. You can see by their smiles that they had a great time.

It’s been a while but I thought I would give a report on how the striper fishing has been at Lake Pleasant.  We are for sure in the winter bite right now. Most anglers are only catching 2-10 striper on average with the bite being reported as slow to moderate. The good news is over the last week the outside temperatures have been warming up. This is great news because the bite is slowly starting to pick up as well. I’m even getting reports from some anglers in the last 2-3 days of 30-50 fish being caught on a day trip.  The bite seems to be best from 1 p.m. to sunset in the northern coves.  The water temperature has even increased from 53 degrees 3 weeks ago to 58 degrees now in some areas.

The best method that is producing fish is using a drop shot using frozen anchovies. Most anglers are fishing 70-80 feet deep. Some anglers have has good results casting or trolling A-Rigs very slowly in the back coves.  As the water temps continue to rise over time and we get closer to spring. The bite should pick up.  This weather provides wonderful comfortable temperatures for the whole family to be on the water, and to explore Arizona lakes.
