Lake elevation is 1,909 feet (95-percent full). Senft fished the lake last week and saw tons of spawning largemouth and smallmouth bass. But “regular” fishing was great, too, he said. Dropshots were working with Roboworms in morning dawn and ox blood in around 15 feet deep. The bass were hitting senkos, Texas rigs, or fishing dropshots whacky style (worm rigged in the middle of the hook.)
The Arizona Fishing Guides sent in the following report: The lake is really starting to turn on. We have had a few trips out there over the last 2 weeks and have had some great numbers of both largemouth and smallmouth bass. Inline spinners and jerk baits seem to be the ticket at this point.
The lake was stocked with trout the week of Monday, Feb. 3 – the last stocking of the winter. When the lake is being stocked with trout, swimbait imitations of the stocked trout can produce some trophy bass. The Arizona Fishing
Guides reported Apache Lake has some really nice smallmouth and largemouth bass being caught on big swimbaits, and finesse worms on the tougher days. Always be ready with that medium-diving crankbait this time of year.
